If a Georgian is proud of anything on earth, it's the Georgian, especially musical, folklore. There are numerous traditional bands preserving this huge heritage, but a number of collectives also make efforts to adapt it with Western musical influences. Stumari is among the best in doing so. They came together in early 2000s. Being an acoustic collective (save for occasional electric keyboards), Stumari performs their folk with mesmerizing beauty and with moods quite diverse, from classical to psychedelic. The band has so far released to albums:

2004 - Betsvis Khidi (Rope Bridge)
2009 - Dila (Morning)

I'm presenting the YouTube playlist for the album, so you can see what I'm talking about:

I hope PA folks will like it!

Sadly I'm in China at the moment and can't get to this, but from your description these guys sound intriguing. I'll be back in the States over the weekend and will check them out then. Hopefully Keneth can have a listen as well.

Stumari have been added to Prog Folk.  Thandrus, please check you private messages.  We're missing record label information about the albums and also could use a good band photo.  Thanks for the recommendation!
