About

Prepare for a transformative visceral experience with traditional toasting, work, dance and songs reflecting on the fleeting and eternal from Sakartvelo (also known as Georgia), a small, ancient and mountainous country located at the crossroads of Europe and Asia. Ori Shalva, the Makharashvili family, is the first singing family of Georgian origins to perform, teach and live outside the country. With their exquisite harmonies and singing skills, Ori Shalva’s authentic performance of this millennia-old tradition will take you on a sonic travelogue of the country and culture, its strength and courage to survive, its excessive generosity and inspiring hospitality and its love for life.

About Ori Shalva

Ori Shalva doesn’t just perform Georgian polyphony. When they sing the visceral harmonies of the millennia old musical tradition, they transcend space and time, and take you on a far-off musical journey of Sakartvelo (Georgia). Singing for Ori Shalva, like all Georgian singing families, is natural, instinctive and originally framed by family celebrations, not staged performances. They only recently emerged from their humble familial beginnings through performances with SING!, Tafelmusik, Blok and other presenters.
