Recording: Darbazi

Artist: Darbazi

Songs: Ori Wodelia + Khintskala*

Recorded at St. Andrew by-the-Lake Anglican Church ("Poor Pilgrim 7"), July 20, 2014.

Darbazi - Ori Wodelia

Darbazi - Khintskala

Full review to follow. Adroit at finding wonderful voices to fill out the church setting, Poor Pilgrim founder Matt Cully made an inspired pick in calling on "Georgian traditional polyphony" choir Darbazi. I've come across this sort of music before, and the only thing in my experience I can relate these harmonies to is the sort of beauty one finds in Beach Boys isolated vocal tracks — although this is obviously tapping into a deeper, older source.

* Thanks to Improvisors' pool for passing along the titles to these!
