The word ‘sakhioba’ means ‘sweet singing’, either with instruments or voices. The Sakhioba ensemble is committed to the revival of traditional Georgian music, paying special attention to the intonation, timbre and arrangements of the remaining masters of traditional singing. Director Malkhaz Erkvanidze is a world authority on Georgian polyphonic music. He has spent his professional life rescuing church hymns and prayers suppressed under Soviet communism. His six books of Georgian hymns have been published with CDs and he has written many articles about the distinctive musical structure of Georgian polyphony
