Members of the local choir and some of their friends perform the songs and dances at this wedding filmed in 1991. The chordal three-part polyphony of the Svans appears as one of the major styles of the Georgian vocal art.

This video is offered as a supplement to the film Funeral Chants from the Georgian Caucasus, now available on DVD from DER at www.der.org/films/funeral-chants.html.
