Georgian Music Workshop on 20-22 May 2016

The American workshop facilitator Frank Kane, founder of the Kartuli Ensemble in New York, will be visiting Vienna and share his rich group work experience in the area of Georgian part singing. Living in Paris, he studies and practices Georgian Singing since 1980 and also supports several singing groups in the USA and in Europe. Georgian polyphonic folk music, according to the UNESCO a “masterpiece of human cultural heritage“, has fulfilled an important function during thousands of years in social and ritual life, especially in times of transition as birth, death, sickness or marriage.

Frank Kane:

 We will learn beautiful traditional polyphonic Georgian songs and enjoy their impact. By conscious vibrations in the songs as well as by body and humming exercises we will explore and integrate inner landscapes, voices and relations, while sleeping or usually intangible parts of our bodies can awake.
