10 Days Of Musical & Cultural Adventure
Svaneti, Georgia ~ 16th to 26th July 2017
“Joyous Hosts! Golden Guests! Come together in the heart of Lakhushdi village!”
Journey to the spectacular High Caucasus Mountains and the world heritage site of Svaneti in Georgia.
Be welcomed as a guest of Lakhushdi, a remote singing hamlet, where ancient pre-Christian traditions and polyphonic chants remain a way of life.
The highlight will be the ancient ritual of Limkheeri on the top of Tanhili hill.
On this, the villagers are offering a range of activities.
Traditional customs and folklore will be taught by village elders.
Join villagers in their activities such as cheese and butter making, bonfires & vodka making!
For more experienced singers – or those who would welcome a challenge – there will be a daily Masterclass with local song-masters who will teach a range of songs.
These will include sacred chants, lullabies and round dances.
Enjoy the stunning landscape and wildflower meadows by foot or horseback.
Join a tour to local places of interest such as the many ancient churches and frescoes.
The ethos of the trip is reciprocity, so come and share the gifts you have to offer, like helping out at a fun English class, teaching your songs or staging plays for the village children.
“You breathed new life into our village. We remember you with love.” Village elder
