Adilei at Eskenazi Hospital
April 12, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
Though the six vocalists of Adilei hail from diverse backgrounds, the art of polyphonic traditions binds them together. Adilei’s music is rooted in the western Georgian province of Guria, the home to the most intricate and colorful form of Georgian polyphonic folk singing. Gurian song devotes equal attention to all vocal elements to create unique melodies that come together only to diverge again. Guria is also known for its style of Krimanchuli, or a rhythmic yodel, that each artist can alter throughout performances.
