"Tsin Tskaro" or "Tsintskaro" (Georgian
: წინწყარო) is a Georgian folk song
from the Kartli
region. Its title loosely translates as, "By the Stream." The song is usually performed by a male vocalist and choir. Although this song is unfamiliar to most Westerners, its haunting melody has been seized on by Western artists, who have incorporated the song into their works of art, such as the Kate Bush
song "Hello Earth
", and the Werner Herzog
1979 remake of Nosferatu
Tsintskaro is also the name of a town in the nation of Georgia.
