Supruli came together in 2008, when a number of friends in NYC who had been singing together informally asked Carl Linich to join them as their Georgian director. The ensemble has performed at the Golden Festival, at Georgian events hosted by Columbia University, and in the Georgian Chveneburebi Festival in 2010. Many Supruli singers have also traveled to Georgia and studied with singers there.
Georgian polyphonic singing has captivated singers and scholars alike, and there are Georgian choirs in many countries. Predominantly a cappella, the music does not follow Western rules of harmony or voice leading, with fifths being more common than octaves. There is also remarkable diversity of styles within the form, despite the fact that Georgia is such a small country. For singers in Supruli, the music has great power on its own - but within the context of Georgian culture, it's something that transcends music theory and reverberates through heart and soul. Anyone who delves into Georgian culture will discover that it's impossible to do so in a purely academic manner; Georgians are intense and passionate about their culture, and that passion is highly contagious.
