DAY 7-Main Themes of Exploration in Kutaisi:

When we think about Georgian polyphony described as ”the cradle of European polyphony” or “the world capital of folk music” it makes you wonder.

Here we will explore and experience in “live” why Georgian folk music is considered as one of the world’s oldest and diverse polyphonic music cultures and the most complex polyphonic traditional music culture in the world.

Georgian dance is another captivating form of art that has thrilled the audiences around the world.

In the renowned Meskhivili Theatre of Kutaisi and then during an evening party in the charming local restaurant you will witness the thrill of Georgian dance performance in the concert specially dedicated to the CreaTour guests.

When you directly experience Georgian folk music it moves you powerfully.

When we think about many of the world’s leading authorities on the subject of folk music describing Georgian polyphony as ”the cradle of European polyphony” or “the world capital of folk music” it makes you wonder.

When you directly experience Georgian folk music it moves you powerfully.

Georgian Traditional Music makes a huge emotional impact on people. Traditional music cultures have some special features which strongly unite performers, that’s why its emotional impact can be stronger than solo musical practices.

Georgian singing is known as a social activity, performed by people who have peaceful and positive emotions toward each other. Georgian traditional singing has a great influence on not only Georgians but especially foreign listeners and performers of this music.

“Powerful, gorgeous, moving, austere, spare, majestic, spine-tingling, ancient in feel, distinctive, special, resonant, rich and challenging.” - these are some of the descriptions of Georgian folk music  by foreign performers.

Georgian dance is another captivating form of art that has thrilled the audiences around the world.

“Dance is a language and Georgian dance is a tale about my country, when you watch Georgian dance you can feel the spirit of Georgia, its history, customs, traditions.” Says Nino Sukhishvili of Georgian National Ballet “Sukhishvili”.

“Sukhishvili” ensemble already managed to conquer the stage of La Scala Theatre back in 1967 (National Geographic lists La Scala as No 1 of top 10 Opera Houses in the World) - curtain was lifted unprecedented 14 times that evening.

With a masterful fusion of classical, modern and folk dance elements Georgian dance has been formed as one of the most spectacular styles of the choreographic art.

As New York Times reporter, Ann Kisselfogg noted, ”Sukhishvili is living proof that there is a place for high art in dealing with national traditions.

“It is very important for dance and music to evolve. Like any art it needs to develop otherwise it becomes something for a museum. You have to add modern elements and mix them with traditional classic movements to keep the performance fascinating and interesting for the audience” - Iliko Sukhishvili.

Many arts benefit from the development and infusion of modern elements. Believing that it is important for art to evolve, we have encouraged and supported music and dance groups to work on the development of folk-fusion programs.
