histoire

The men’s folk and chant ensemble Didgori was founded in 2003 with a leadership of Mr. Levan Tsitaishvili.
The name Didgori honors the historical battle in 1121 that helped reunite Georgia and ushered in a period of growth in arts and culture. 
The Didgori ensemble is dedicated to the research and performance of Georgian folk songs and chant, a project that is aided by study of source recordings from the beginning of the 20th century. Members of the ensemble feel humbled to carry the name Didgori representative of such a distinguished moment in Georgian history and aspire to contribute to Georgian cultural preservation.
The ensemble members wish to dedicate themselves to the traditions of their ancestors through mastery and popularization of Georgian folk songs and chants, and hope that their efforts will inspire future generations.
