about

This rare antiphonal worksong comes from Kartli in Eastern Georgia. Avery learned it in 2013 from Malkhaz Erkvanidze, a traditional singer, ethnomusicologist, and major force in the Georgian folk and sacred music revival. The text is from the perspective of a field laborer, saying, “I’m sharpening you and sharpening you, my sickle,” and describing the various goings on in and around the work field.
