About The Other Georgia

David Gillman, Joel Sindelar and Jim Desmond areĀ The Other Georgia- a virtuoso vocal trio specializing in folk music from the country of Georgia, in the Caucasus mountains of Eastern Europe.

Ranging from the haunting to the frenetic, this ancient polyphony has been passed from father to son for at least a thousand years before being notated, recorded and otherwise available to singers outside of the country. Originating at the sacred wine toasting feasts of the villages and in the frescoed caves of the monasteries in one of Europe's seven oldest civilizations, this rich musical tradition has instantly mesmerized lovers of close harmony worldwide.

David, Joel and Jim are musicians who grew up in the United States and independently fell in love with this music and visited the country of Georgia to learn more about it. Meeting in Boston in 2006, they formed The Other Georgia and have performed at festivals all over New England since then. In the summer of 2009 they recorded their first, self-titled album, which is available as a physical CD through CDbaby, or digitally on both CDbaby and Itunes.
