World Acappella: Iberi Choir of Georgia

w/ Shodekeh

THU JUL 26 | 7:30PM

The Iberi Choir is from the Republic of Georgia, home to one of the world’s most distinctive choral traditions with male singers providing gorgeously rich, shifting blocks of improvised harmony. The Georgian polyphonic song expresses human happiness, the joys and troubles of man’s relationship with God, the universe, and fellow men. Singing, for Georgians, is an organic and inseparable part of human existence. Iberi is one of the truly exceptional vocal groups in the world. Tonight, they perform their own songs and collaborate with Baltimore beat boxer Shodekeh for a performance that transcends time and geography. Tix & Info

SATURDAYS | JUL 28, AUG 4, 11, & 18 | 3-5PM EACH DAY

‘Tének’ utilizes a traditional system of iconography in Mexican culture. Commonly used in embroidery, its images are found on bags, keskem (capes), napkins, or tablecloths, and are easily mistaken as simple decoration. Each Tének motif is unique to the wearer and communicates to others the cultural origins and societal roles of the person wearing the Tének emblazoned garment. Tix & Info
