Laima Sang for Georgians
After the 5-year pause, Laima Vaikule has arrived in Georgia to give a concert on June 4 at Tbilisi Concert Hall. She is as charming as ever; she presented a memorable evening to Tbilisians.
It is my belief that the art should stay apart and it should not be influenced by any political repercussions. However, when the war breaks out, this untouchable sphere is also dragged in. A lot of Georgian singers used to perform abroad and still sing in
Russia very successfully; they cherishing its big market that Georgia cannot offer. No matter how tense the situation is, it is important that people-to-people relations are warm and nice. Art does unite nations.
Laima Vaikule began her concert by greeting “the country where everybody sings.” She noted that it is a tendency – people like old songs and new anecdotes. “But I feel just the contrary” - she said. “I am reborn after every single new song”. That is why, together with hits, she performed several new ones which the Georgian public has not heard yet.
What has not changed is that Laima Vaikule is still singing the songs of her veteran and highly respected compatriot, composer Raimonds Pauls. The hits that have become popular all over the post Soviet Union and even beyond it, such as “Charlie” and “Vernisage” were created by that man. Her voice has not altered for the worse at all and is still absolutely magnetizing, as the lady herself. What a great tandem! And her figure – she has not put on an ounce of weight. One can look at this stunningly beautiful singer and say that the time has stopped and has proved to be too weak to leave its harsh marks on this nice creature.
Laima Vaikule, famous singer, director, actress and choreographer, made her debut at the age of 12 at a certain contest. Since 1985, she creates the hits for the post-Soviet Union countries. She has become one of the most charming female singers. Besides the abovementioned hits, Laima sang love songs characteristic of her, though her private life is rather mysterious. However, this sense of secrecy only adds to her aura and makes her a mysterious lady,full of individualism and duende, as the Spaniards would say.
It was a soiree of sweet memories – taking my generation back to the childhood when we lived in love and friendship.
Laima Vaikule capped the concert by “Vernisage”, reaping emotions, stream of applause, sea of flowers and affection on the part of the Georgian audience.
“I thank you for being here today. I expected this love as I know you well. I do not know and nobody knows when I’ll come back again. But the sooner the better,” the star commented for the journalists and did not even refuse to take photos with her. Her incomparable, sunny, warm and beautiful smile is there on those pictures. The audience will not forget that pleasant day.
