Led by Ketevan Mindorashvili, Ensemble Zedashe is a mixed choir based in the beautiful historic town of Sighnaghi in eastern Georgia. Five of the young members of the ensemble come from K’akheti in eastern Georgia; the other two are brothers from the mountains of upper Svaneti in the northwest part of the country. Ensemble Zedashe learned their repertoire from relatives and regional musicians, collected songs and dances in the highlands, and studied hymn singing in some of Georgia’s holiest monasteries.

The repertoire in this book and the accompanying CD were chosen to favor songs from K’akheti and Svaneti.
