Folk Music Concert: Tbilisi Conservatory Centennial

On Tuesday, May 2nd, a folk concert was held in the Grand Hall of the Tbilisi Conservatory as part of the concert festival celebrating the 100th year anniversary of the Conservatory.

Several excellent groups performed. I wasn't able to film all of them (notably my camera died before being able to capture the Telavi folk and chant ensemble "Patara Kakhi"), but I was able to capture snippets of some of the performances. Other performers included longtime friends from the Sakhioba Ensemble and Didgori Ensemble. Check out their latest albums on their websites!

Enjoy the below clips of lesser known but equally interesting groups!
