ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Georgia is situated in the center of the grand collision between the European and Asian land masses. The continents crash, rise spectacularly in the Caucasus mountains, and release their tensions into the Black Sea. Georgian culture is born from this encounter between Europe and Asia, mountain and sea. The twin pillars of Georgian culture are polyphonic singing and the supra. The supra is a Georgian feast with copious amounts of homemade wine and profound toasting. At such gatherings of families and friends, music rises organically as the spirits are lifted. It was in this atmosphere that these recordings were made, simply with a single microphone but with great passion and soul. If one travels to Georgia, one finds oneself not only dazzled by the talents of individual singers and musicians but constantly in awe of the collective cultural wealth of the Georgian singing tradition.

Iveroni is an ensemble of talented young singers and musicians from various regions of the Caucasus Mountain nation of Georgia. Organized by Romanoz Lashkhia, Iveroni consists of the soaring lead vocals of Giorgi Chikovani and Davit Gogitishvili, Lashkhia and Beka Tcertcvadze in the middle, and Davit Batiashvili providing the bass. They perform with a tremendous force and energy the traditional polyphonic songs of Georgia. The music is of love and heroism and is played and sung with a strong spirit of brotherhood. In addition to the forceful group interplay of vocals, the instrumental accompaniment includes Chikovani playing the panduri, Gogitishvili on the salamuri, Tcertcvadze on changuri, and Lashkhia playing bass panduri. The recordings were made on location in the Old City of Tbilisi.

They sing with gusto & nice harmonies
The Republic of Georgia was in the headlines in 2008, and it wasn't in regards to their music. This album arrived in my mailbox at the very same time that Russia was aggressively invading the small, independent, pro-Western democracy to subordinate it and remove its freely elected President. I immediately put on this album and said a prayer for the refugees who were being forced to flee from their homes in the South Ossetia and Abkhazia regions.

Regardless of the tense situation in their homeland, Iveroni is a group of five young talented musicians (Roman Lashkhia, Gieorgi Chikovani, Davit Batiashvili, Davit Gogitishivili, Beka Tcertcvadze). Their instruments are the panduri, bass panduri, salamuri, and changuri. Their traditional songs emphasize vocals, and they relate stories of love, heroism, and brotherhood. They sing with gusto and nice harmonies. Producer Nathaniel Berndt traveled to the old city of Tblisi to record Iveroni on location. Additional liner notes would've been nice to explain more about this group, their music and songs. The war with Russia has left Georgia's countryside scorched by bombs and tank fire, and I wonder if Iveroni has songs that would be appropriate in such a circumstance. However, I highly doubt that they are out singing them until peace and freedom are restored to the Caucasus Mountains and Russian forces withdraw. (Joe Ross)
