“ჩელა” ბლატო ზლატოს შესრულებით
ადილეის ნიუ–ორლეანელმა მეგობრებმა მეგრული სიმღერა “ჩელას” საკუთარი ინტერპრეტაცია შემოგვთავაზეს.
აი რას წერენ ისინი საკუთარ ფეისბუქ გვერდზე:
Two of our vocalists, Annie and Lou, went to visit Annie’s parents in Tbilisi, Georgia this summer and spent several weeks learning songs with our friends at ადილეი • Adilei, eating mchadi and lobiani, drinking wine and chacha, hiking up mountains, and falling in love with Georgia’s beautiful vistas. Annie’s parents are moving back to the U.S. this week, a bittersweet departure as they retire after 33 years in the Foreign Service. We thought it an appropriate time to share a sneak peek of our first foray into Georgian music: a Blato Zlato-ified, non-traditional rendition of a Megrelian song we fell in love with, Asho Chela. Here’s a recent rehearsal video of us sowing the early seeds of an arrangement; come out to our shows this week to see its continual evolution, including a deep, mournful bass intro that we have since added. Thank you for being so welcoming, Georgia — we hope to return! <3
