:: Recording Notes ::
0 - Mukhasa translated means an oak tree infested by mosquitoes. This is a patriotic song, and the Georgians symbolize their motherland as an oak tree. The mosquitoes symbolize their enemies defeated; the oak remains unharmed and the mosquitoes die. The song is performed by a folk-singing troupe who sing it in the manner of the common people.
