About the Artist
Though the six vocalists of Adilei hail from diverse backgrounds, the art of choral 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.
Presented with the Indiana University Russian and Eastern European Institute.
