Teach and Learn in Georgia: Back in Business

A supra in Kardanakhi, Georgia
 
After a hiatus during "regime change," Teach and Learn in Georgia (TLG) is back in business.

On my right sidebar is a link to a current TLGer - one who started under the old regime and continued under the new, so he may have a unique perspective to offer you.

My second favorite Georgian dance video:




And my favorite, Xorumi or Khorumi, performed by Erisioni. Doesn't matter which gender you are, it gets the blood a-movin'.



 


 Ah, what a place.

  1. Great Dance videos but I love the Racha song itself. There were 2 other great georgian songs - Patara Patara and the other famous one about a girl. What was that?

  2. If Patara Patara is the one I'm thinking of, I wasn't a huge fan of that one, though I sure heard it enough. If the other famous one about a girl was Patara Qalo, I *love* that song. Is this the one you're thinking of? http://livingrootless.blogspot.com/2011/10/georgia-real-national-anthem.html

    I also like the song about Rustavi (my "hometown") here: http://livingrootless.blogspot.com/2012/03/we-interrupt-armenia-to-bring-you.html.
