Master performers in Georgia's ancient polyphony tradition, Ensemble Basiani sings religious hymns, monastic chants, epic ballads, and folk and work songs from its Eastern European homeland, the choir's stirring power matched by consummate musicianship and control. "A near psychedelic groove of unusual harmonies, rhythmic intensity and sheer beauty" (The Herald Tribune).
