The Caucasus for Kids — Georgian Supra — All Around This World

Georgians gather at a feast called a Supra where they sit around a long, wooden table, eat voluminously, make toasts to long life and the Georgian nation, and sing sing sing.

There is traditionally a toastmaster and 2nd toaster who interplay throughout the meal, which might include khachapuri (cheese-filled bread), mtsvadi (grilled pork or veal on a stick), limonati (a lemon, pear or tarragon drink) and khinkali (meat dumplings). Georgia’s most distinct musical form is called the “table song,” a polyphonic/many-voiced form of music sung without instruments.
