Performing mesmerizing Georgian choral music from every corner of this ancient, ethnically diverse region, the striking male voices of Ensemble Basiani embody otherworldly sound from the world’s oldest polyphonic tradition. Following a celebrated 2012 White Light Festival appearance, Basiani returns for a transporting a cappella concert of sacred and folk songs in the atmospheric Church of St. Mary the Virgin.

“Exquisitely rendered...hauntingly beautiful.”
– New York Times
“A near psychedelic groove of unusual harmonies, rhythmic intensity and sheer beauty.”
– Sarasota Herald-Tribune
