Traditional Music/Dancing

Here is a video from last night showing traditional Georgian dancing. There is some streaking in the video from the lights but it's not too distracting. Be sure to turn up the volume on your computer!

  1. I loved that video so much. I'm so happy you're having a great time there!
    What kind of music is this?

  2. Thank you, Lilia but only two more weeks to go. I'm going to try to savour every moment of what time I have left here!

    The music is a type of traditional music they have here that is very old.

  3. I remember that Georgians are great dancers...even young people know the traditional dances. One of my Georgian friends has a niece and a nephew who were brilliant dancers (and aged about 7 and 8 at the time), and danced for everyone once at a wedding. I should have taken a video...they were great!

  4. I wish I had gotten closer for this one but I didn't want to seem rude.

  5. Post some sound bites when you have time -- assuming you've purchased music CDs while there, sounds exotic and hypnotic even -- thanks again Russ for sharing your experiences with us. Caye
