The roots of Georgian folk tunes reach the Middle Ages, but in the performance of the quintet this music sounds surprisingly modern and relevant. Quintet “Urmuli” is known all over the world: they have conducted more than 500 concerts in Germany, Austria, France, Switzerland, Spain, Canada, Poland, the UK and other countries. And each of these performances became an event in the cultural life of a country.
David Dzhimshitashvili plays the unique folk musical instruments handmade, which are spread in different parts of Georgia. So, salamuri, panduri, duduki – tools that represent the musical culture of eastern Georgia, and chonguri, chuniri, chiboni – west of the country. Virtuoso performs incredibly complex melody directly on 2-salamuri simultaneously (Georgian wind instrument, flute), which in this case are different parties.
