Katie Melua announces winter tour with Gori Women’s Choir

For this very special winter
concert series, multi award-winning recording artist Katie Melua is
joined on stage by the 23-piece Gori Women’s Choir. 

Masters of the ancient Georgian
tradition of polyphonic singing, Gori Women’s Choir are described by
Melua as a ‘completely unique vocal orchestra’.  Together they will
perform new material from Melua’s forthcoming recording project as well
as a selection of classic songs from her 6 album catalogue.  

“The last 18
months of working with Gori Women’s Choir in Georgia has been so
inspiring. I am immensely looking forward to performing with them across
the UK and Europe this winter.”
Katie Melua, March 2016.

Gori Women’s Choir
was founded in 1970 at Gori’s School of Music, and is lead and conducted
by Teona Tsiramua. Georgian polyphonic singing has been designated by
UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
