About the Artist

Thriving for centuries, the world’s oldest polyphonic choral tradition keeps alive the rich heritage of folk songs, monastic chants, religious hymns, and epic ballads that have shaped the very spirit of the country of Georgia. This singular singing style, proclaimed by UNESCO as a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity, pours from the male vocalists of Ensemble Basiani in an unforgettably haunting way—especially within the spellbinding acoustic of the Princeton University Chapel. In a program traversing the 7th-13th centuries, these internationally-beloved singers bring the very soul of their homeland to our doorstep, immersing us in the timeless modernity of ancient tradition.
