dc.description.abstractThis presentation is the results of an ethnographic study conducted in the Republic of Georgia in the summer of 2012 on the influences that contribute to the cultural identity of Georgians regarding their musical traditions and how then music affects their lives and sense of cultural identity. Georgia today has three main types of music: traditional folk music, which is largely a synthesis of Persian, Slavic, and Caucasian music; sacred music, which is one of the oldest polyphonic music traditions in the world; and pop music, which is heavily American and European in influence. This study seeks to get a sense of Georgia’s musical and cultural identity as it continues to emerge from the Soviet Era into the contemporary world. This research was paid for in part by a grant from the Katherine Lindley Foundation.
