So, if you were left wondering ‘but, where are the women singers in Georgia?!’, know that you are not alone. We can assure you there are many badass Georgian women raising their voices in polyphonic harmony. You might just have to look a bit further than the BBC.
We will tell the story of how ancient polyphony and ancestral roots have been carried through generations and are still sung in both the very brightest and very darkest moments of life. We want to focus on the female perspectives in this story, giving a voice to those ancestors who might not usually be heard.
