ZARI Returns to NewfoundlandJuly 5, 2011
The musical ensemble ZARI is returning to Newfoundland!!!
ZARI is an exciting trio of singer/instrumentalists who specialize in the music of the Georgian Republic. In mid 2003 Shalva Makharashvili, Andrea Kuzmich, and Reid Robins joined forces to concentrate their efforts on the exquisite harmony and complex polyphony of this ancient musical culture. By turns exotic, lyrical, and powerful, ZARI brings to the stage three accomplished artists who embody the tradition and improvisational interplay of one of the world’s most beautiful musics in its most transparent form; the vocal trio.
