This edition has a special significance, as the album is dedicated to Maro Tarkhnishvili – a singer whose voice, became a symbol of Georgian women’s dignity in the twentieth century. Despite the iron curtains of Soviet Georgia, Maro Tarkhnishvili’s amazing performance has never lost the spirit of freedom and strength. It was Mrs. Maro who was able to create the distinctive and remarkable style in Georgian traditional music.
