Drunken Georgian lads = singing

I really love Georgian polyphonic singing and I also really love how Georgian's sing at every opportunity. I remember when me and William were there in 2007 we were serenaded by friends of friends in a park and sat in on teenage boys learning traditional song as a matter of pride. I also love how in these clips they are managing it whilst really drunk and chain smoking... I can't help but wonder if British boys sung more we'd have less fighting and vomiting in the streets on Saturday night... Having said that Georgian men fight more than any I've ever met so... maybe this is a silly point. The clips are quite funny though...

The Paper Hats

A very dear old friend of mine makes very beautiful music under the name The Paper Hats. He has just released a record of it called Deseret Canyon. If you want to hear snippets of it and him talking about Mormon alphabets, world fairs and distant adventures and history you can do so here. Enjoy!
