“Best serenade you've ever heard” - Christina Aguilera and her band members excited by Georgian folk songs
29 July, 2016
Christina Aguilera arrived in Batumi on July 27, at night. The six-time Grammy winning singer will perform at the Black Sea Arena on July 30. Aguilera and forty representatives of her technical group have checked in Batumi Hilton hotel and today the full-dress rehearsal will take place.

Yesterday, Aguilera, accompanied by the members of her technical group, visited the Adjara Wine House. They listened to Georgian folk songs and were very impressed.

One of the dancers of Aguilera’s supporting band
has spread the video with a comment: “When dinner comes with the best serenade you've maybe ever heard. This video does not do these men justice. You had to have been in that room. The vibrations coming from their collective harmonies was literally a spiritual experience. No one introduced them so I have no idea who they are but they were out of this world.”

Christina Aguilera and the members of her band are not the first foreign stars who were amazed by Georgian folk songs. Earlier this summer, the coastal capital of Georgia was visited by a world-famous band Maroon 5, whose members heard Erisioni's preformance the day before their own show and posted a video with the commentary: ”This was awesome.” Maroon 5 also performed with this Georgian band at their concert.
