The ethereal polyphonic harmonies of Iberi explore the emotional music of Georgia; songs so beautiful they were launched into space on Voyager 2’s golden record and declared an intangible cultural treasure by UNESCO. Former rugby player and lifelong singer, Bidzina Murgulia set aside his sporting life to create a choir that puts a joyous and respectful stamp on centuries-old folk tunes that celebrate Georgian life.
