“The night is darkening round me, The wild winds coldly blow; But a tyrant spell has bound me, And I cannot, cannot go. The giant trees are bending, Their bare boughs weighed with snow, And the storm is fast descending, and yet I cannot go. Clouds beyond clouds above me, Wastes beyond wastes below; But nothing drear can move me- I will not, cannot go” Emily Brontë Nov 1837

It was the most inspiring experience to travel to Georgia together with the filmmakers Peter Wiren & John Ronnerblad. We met “The State Ensemble of Georgian Folk Singing – Basiani”, as I suspect is one of the best choirs in the world. We sang and did a lovely collaboration-concert in Tbilisi. Also our trip went to the beautiful Kakheti region in eastern Georgia and we visited the singing “Quedeli Community” for disabled grown-ups. All meetings were filled with love, music and Georgian folksong and the most delicious food course, Khinkali! The project was made possible by Konstnärsnämnden – The Swedish Arts Grants Committee.
