AKOG presents Eroba!
A Kind of Guise proudly presents Eroba! The Georgian band keeps up traditions and is solely performing national folk music. Recorded in the mountains of Kazbegi, the song ‘Tsminda Sameba’ translates to ‘Holy Trinity’ and honours the namesake church in the region which is beautifully located at the peak of a mountain top (see last Image of this Journal post).
Georgia has a rich and still vibrant traditional music culture that dates back thousands of years. Table songs expressing the views on features and vision of the world serve as a soothing melodic companion to every supra. It’ll soon strike you that Georgia’s unique location between Europe and Asia is not only showing itself in its cuisine, but also in a variety of urban singing styles with a mixture of native, Middle Eastern, and European harmonic languages.
