In ancient times, the country of Georgia was called Iberia; the vocal ensemble Iberi honors its homeland’s historic traditions in song. Iberi sings work songs, carols, hymns, historical ballads, and a host of treasures from the pre-Christian era with gripping intensity and virtuosity. Clad in their trademark black coats and boots, the musicians’ iconic brand of polyphonic singing features blocks of unconventional improvised harmonies with wild stratospheric falsetto tones floating above sepulchral bass notes. Drama, ecstasy, and tenderness are at the core of every note Iberi sings. PERFORMERS Iberi
