Republic of Dance: Passing It On in Signagi, Georgia (Video)
Signagi’s a small town – only 3,000 people live here – but it’s a powerhouse. Center of Kakheti, Georgia’s wine country in the South Caucasus, Signagi was built on a hill overlooking the farms and vineyards of the Alazani Valley, with the dark peaks of the Caucasus Mountain marking the horizon like a line of storm clouds.
This is a region where wine grapes flourish, wine-makers depend on traditional methods, and artists breathe new life into ancient Georgian songs and dances.
