The Velaslavasay Panorama is indeed pleased to welcome the Zedashe Ensemble to Los Angeles for an evening performance unlike any other. Hailing from the Republic of Georgia, Zedashe Ensemble presents a concert of traditional Georgian music, both secular and religious, featuring the ancient haunting three-part harmony unique to the Caucasus Mountains of Georgia.

Accompanied by traditional Georgian instruments, the music features a dark, sonorous vocal quality and startling, unexpected harmonies. With five men and three women singers, plus two virtuosic dancers, Zedashe Ensemble is one of the few mixed gender performing ensembles in Georgia, and have developed a highly distinctive sound that captures the traditional way of singing in the home. The ten-person ensemble promises to transport you from the crags of the Caucasus Mountains in Svaneti to the shores of the Black Sea in Adjara.
