Here everyone is real - the inhabitants, their lives, and our songs.read all news
Our tourists, who constantly asked where to listen to a small concert, with a guitar and Georgian songs, pushed us to the idea of creating such a project. So, in April 2018, the project “Sounds of Georgia” appeared - regular mini-concerts of live multi-genre Georgian music in the authentic places of Tbilisi, created specifically for tourists. In the first year of its existence Sounds of Georgia became a nominee of Welcome to Georgia Tourism National Award.
After all, the stereotype that all Georgians sing is not a stereotype. It's true! Everyone in Georgia sings and everyone who comes here starts singing as well. We only give our guests the opportunity to touch the spirit of Georgian music.
The concert involves both professional musicians and students of the Tbilisi Conservatoire, as well as ordinary Tbilisi citizens who love to sing and do so with pleasure for our guests.
Sounds of Georgia concerts can be attended 4 times a week (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday) at 17:00.
The duration of the mini-concert is 40 minutes.
Our aim is to popularize Georgian musical culture. We see the joy that our guests get, and experience it ourselves, understanding that our hospitable project works well. The concert takes place without any microphones and amplifiers, so the number of seats at the concert is limited.
Nana Tabidze - the founder, leader and inspirer of the project.

as well as musicians, entertainers and coordinators at the locations.
