The Patriarchal Choir of Tbilisi Holy Trinity (Sameba) Cathedral sang Georgian chants and polyphonic folk songs at the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City on Sunday.
Georgian President Salome Zourabichvili and Culture Minister Tea Tsulukiani attend the concert.
Tonight, we saw a historical event for Georgian culture, for our Georgian traditions.
Hearing the Georgian chants within the walls of the Sistine Chapel was an emotional moment that will stay in our history books.
