Zedashe Ensemble in concert Friday, October 1 at Shoreline UU Church

Tuesday, September 28, 2010


The Zedashe Ensemble from the Republic of Georgia will perform in concert this Friday, October 1, 7:30 pm, at the Shoreline Unitarian Universalist Church, 14724 1st Ave NE, Shoreline 98155. 206-363-7994.

They will perform traditional Georgian music, both secular and religious, featuring the ancient, haunting three-part harmony unique to the Caucasus Mountains of Georgia.

Accompanied by traditional Georgian instruments and two virtuosic dancers, the ten-person ensemble promises to transport you from the crags of the Caucasus Mountains in Svaneti to the shores of the Black Sea in Adjara to the vineyards of Kakheti.

Their songs reflect a range of rituals, from grape harvesting to the teaching of martial arts, to hymns from the Georgian Orthodox service. In addition to the collection and preservation of songs, Zedashe is dedicated to documenting the traditional context of the songs and maintaining the threads binding song and dance to every-day life.

Tickets can be purchased at BrownPaperTickets, $15 for adults; $10 for students and $20 at the door.
