This horserider’s song is from the Imereti region in western Georgia.  It is one of the most performed and popular Georgian folk songs, and has been recorded in different versions by the best-known folk choirs.  Much of the text consists of nonsense syllables – think of them as the Georgian version of “fa la la.”

A pronunciation CD is available from the publisher.  A full recording of this piece is available on CD-08.
