Usually, at this yearly summer festival in the mountain, people perform profane songs and dances after the morning ritual in the sanctuary. In 1991, the clan who was in charge of the festival organization was mourning, so that the only song performed was the hymn to Jgurag, Saint George. The chordal three-part polyphony of the Svans appears as one of the major styles of the Georgian vocal art.
