Ancient Sounds

Our cousin Sarah arranged for us to have a private concert before lunch today with a Georgian choir that performs traditional songs from various areas of Georgia.  We were having so much fun in the open air that a Holy man joined us- see the right side of the bottom photo.  I really like the yodeling sound the women sing in parts of their songs. 

Also, the dancing is amazing.  The women move in a shy and delicate motion, whereas the men move in violent warrior-type motion right next to them.  The contrast is beautiful.
