For You (Iriao)
The band’s full name is Ethno – Jazz Band Iriao and it’s a group made up of David Malazonia, Nugzar Kavtaradze, Bidzina Murgulia, Levan Abshilava, Shalva Gelekva, George Abashidze, and Mikheil Javakhishvili. Or maybe I just typed some real names and some gibberish – you’ll never know!!! (Editor’s note: These are all real names). I always appreciate a country sending an entry in their official language but For You translates to Sheni Gulistvis so I can totally understand why they went with the English for the title. Sheni Gulistvis sounds like a disease of the liver.
Given that this was probably filmed for around €200 it looks pretty good. But someone needs to help that poor woman escape from that sheet.
Day – be longer
And melt the snow
To warm up the one, who felt cold in the night
Hey, want to see what this looks like in Georgian?
It’s like someone wrote a bunch of W’s upside down…
Apparently, this is folk music mixed with jazz, which now makes me reconsider my opinion of both folk music and jazz.
