3. Healing Songs and Circle Dances with Nino Naneishvili

"It's one of the most valuable feelings, when your ancestor, your old generation hears his own songs. And when you perform it in your variation, improvisation and when they are happy. It's I think the biggest gift a performer can feel." Nino Naneishvili, ethnomusicologist and musical director of women's ensemble Ialoni (https://ialoni.com/en/) tells us how she collected a healing song from a tiger and adapted it into her own style. Voices of the Ancestors by Holly Taylor-Zuntz and Susan Thompson.
