In Doluri (“Drum Dance”), Alexi Matchavariani (1913-1995) captures the vitality of Georgian dance rhythms in an inventive way.  The “doom” and “dam” sounds should be an imitation of the sound of the drum—in this case, the doli, 1 2-sided drum about the size and shape of a field drum which is played either with the hands or with sticks.
