Mamli Mukhasa

Recordings of our Georgian chorus’s concert exist! This is Mamli Mukhasa, one of the songs in which I have to sing-gasp!-by myself. It’s about the stalwartness of Georgia, and Moses is mentioned in there towards the end, for some reason. I’m in the dark red shirt, standing next to my advisor/doppelgänger.

This other song is the very first one we learned at the first meeting of singers interested in joining the chorus, so I have a special fondness for it. It’s a rather absurd children’s song in which the speaker asks a goldsmith to make him a gold bird’s shoe (like a horseshoe), and then with the remaining gold to make him another object, and then with the remaining gold, etc.
