Workshops

Workshop in Georgian polyphonic chant held by ensemble Rustavi
For you to feel the Georgian local time, we have organized workshops of percussion and Georgian traditional chant held by the Georgian artists during the festival days. This part of the program is very important for the true understanding of Georgian culture. As it is by trying the tones and the words with one’s own tongue that one can understand the soul of the song, by sharing one rhythm, one can feel the heartbeat of the history. With these workshops, you will be able not only to observe the “local time” of Georgia, but also to dive in it and to create your own Dutch-Georgian time sensation.  
We don’t impose any special requirement for the participants of our workshops. A workshop is a meeting point for professionals and amateurs from different countries and cultures. Everyone, irrespective of age or occupation, is welcome to share our inspiration. All you need is a wish!
