Tamara Gachechiladze is the name, "Keep the faith" is the song. You need no more. You don't even have to listen to it. You have been warned. Here
2016's unvoteable effort comes from the too cool for school Nika Kocharov and Young Georgian Lolitaz with "Midnight Gold", an unfathomable rocky nonsense that relatively appeals. I hope the guitarist is watching out for lead posioning. It can be found here
The shade of Ruslana lives in the war-like pocket rocket form of Nina Sublatti with "Warrior" in '15. Expect hair extensions, grimacing and war drums. Wowsers. She can be found here, but don't spill her pint.
The "what in God's name" act of 2014 comes from the Tbilisi jazz outfit The Shin & Mariko with "Three minutes to Earth". Your guess is as good as mine here

The Tourist Guide says

"Few of the Earth's small nations offer the visitor as much as Georgia. Georgia is a country the isze of Switzerland but is able to boast the highest mountains in Europe; truly fabulous walks; more indigenous grape varieties than anywhere;a fantastic architecture of stone watch towers; carved wooden balconies, richly frescoed churches, and Art Nouveau".

"Comnine this with a Medittereanean climate and the legendary Georgian hospitality, and you have an unique travel destination. So come, and explore it for yourself."


"Tbilisi has been the capital of Georgia for fifteen hundred years. Legend places the city's foundation at the feet of 'King Gorgasali's pheasant.' Back in the 5th century the kin, when out hawking, caught a pheasant on the wing that fell into one of the hot springs. Apparently by the time of retrieval the bird had been cooked and was ready to serve. Thus the king ordered the city to be built around the spring".

The capital of Georgia Tbilisi stands on the banks of the River Mtkvari, in a valley surrounded by hills. The word Tbilisi derives from the Georgian 'tbili' which means warm - referring to the natural springs bubbling up from the earth near its 4th century Narikala fortress. Tbilisi is a major economic, transportation and cultural center - hub of the Southern Caucasus. In its Old Town the visitors will find a Mediterranean atmosphere and a harmonious architectural melange which reflects the wide variety of nationalities that down through the ages have made their homes in Tbilisi".
