Thread Name: Help: album by Gori Women's Choir, Georgian Repub
Subject: RE: help me help Gori Women's Choir

I've got the album, and bought it when it first came out. I fell in love with Georgian music back in the early 1970s. I've been singing Georgian songs since learning "Shen Khar Venakhi" (the Kakheti-Kartli version) in 1973. In 1985, I was one of the co-founders of the Kartuli Ensemble, an American group that sings Georgian music and who members have since gone on to establish such groups as the Kavkasia Trio, Iveria, Darbazi, and Merani.

I think I may have found a source for you--contact The Georgian Association [of the United States] and see if they still have it in stock. (Thay also have copies of the Kartuli Ensemble recording.)
