"... exotic, beautifully modulated style... haunting ... " The New York Times

Kitka returns from their first tour to the Caucasus to present a collaborative concert with Trio Kavkasia, an internationally acclaimed ensemble specializing in the strikingly beautiful traditional harmonies. Kitka and Trio Kavkasia's program will feature material ranging from gentle lullabies, lyrical love songs, and sublime sacred pieces to rowdy dance tunes and robust table and work songs. A Georgian song's parts relate to each other like a Möbius strip, with unexpected chords that create richly ornamented textures that do not follow Western rules of tuning and harmony.
