Lashari Ensemble is a men’s ensemble founded in 1984 by the director of the Magharosk’ari Cultural Center at the time, Valik’o Tskipashvili. Although Magharosk’ari today is the biggest settlement of the people from Pshavi, the Center closed due to lack of finances at the fall of the Soviet Union. Since then, the group only occasionally gathers to sing. The ensemble sings in an old style, focusing on the songs their Pshav forefathers sang together.
Singers at the time of recording: Valik’o Tskipashvili; Amiran Gigauri; Avtandil Gigauri; Irak’li Tskipashvili; Nodar Mgeliashvili; Amiran Zurabashvili
