First one is bit simple compared to others, because it has only two voices, but it's also easier to listen for starters
And here is another song in it's true place, where it belongs - among people

And this is a work song, which has the most complex polyphony in Georgian songs, because it has 4 voices (parts).
People used to sing these songs for hours during field work, it gave them strength and joy.

Amazing polyphony. While being unique there is a superficial similarity to Corsican polyphonic chant.

I used to love the Rustavi choir 'chakrolo'(?) who were popular in the west in the early 90s.

Yes, eastern Georgian and Corsican music have quite a similarity. Rustavi choir is still performing and is quite popular.
As for Chakrulo, it's one of the jewels of eastern Georgian songs. It was sent on Voyager Golden Record.
This is the record they sent:

Modern Georgian music is also beautiful. Nino Katamadze & Insight for example. Haven't you thought of making a thread for modern music?

Yes it is and Nino is a very talented singer, but for me folk music stands on an entirely different level

Also, the group I've been posting most is doing a crowdfunding for a tour in US, so maybe you'd check it out
