...The Older, the Better.

Dear music lover,
You are cordially invited for an evening with mainly Georgian folk songs, with a Balkan ingredient as well.

"Friendship & Wine"

An evening of music from the Caucasus and the Balkans

Presented by:
Trio Kundzuli

Friday, March 27th 2009
7:30 p.m.
Heliconian Hall
35 Hazelton Avenue, Toronto, ON
(1 block noth of Yorkville Ave)

$15 or pay what you can

For more information,
contact Bie @ 416-203-8907

Machari is an eight-member group of enthusiastic singers, whose name means "new wine", a metaphorical reference to the fomentation of new ideas.
Megobrebi is a twelve-member women’s group with friendship at its core and song as its expression. The name "Megobrebi" means "Friends".
Kundzuli means "Island" and is a trio of women singers from Toronto Island

Note: We really enjoyed one of the previous concerts of the Toronto-based vocal harmonies in May of 2007. As Enhee put it: "Appreciation of different cultures is what brings us together, through songs, music and other arts. Perhaps the most direct, efficient, and certainly, most pleasant way.
Toronto is a great place to be to learn about the world…"

See you there!
