These are lovely-- Mikiashvili in particular has a very fine voice.

I love Georgian polyphony and listen to a lot of Hamlet Gonashvili and Rustavi Choir, and it's great to be hearing some newer voices!

Apareka by Trio Mandili is very lovely too. I was introduced to it via Facebook so I searched for their other songs on YouTube and they have quite a few that I liked.

I am currently addicted to Civ 6’s Georgia theme so this is right up my alley.

Last year Iberi Choir performed at the Lowell Folk Festival, and it looks like they will do a couple events in New England again this year. I'd definitely recommend checking them out if you're near a performance (the "Audio/Video" section of that site also has lots of links if you want a sampling). They focus on polyphonic, but also perform in several other folk traditions from various regions in Georgia.

Georgian men's choir music brings to mind the mysterious women across the black sea
