Georgian pianist Giorgi Mikadze was planning to implement this kind of project for quite a long time. He is the author of two important projects: “Voisa” (in collaboration with the Georgian vocal ensemble Basiani) and “Georgian Overtones” with the participation of celebrity jazz performers based in New York.

‘Georgian Overtones’ was first performed in August 2017 in Berlin within the frames of the Young Euro Classic festival. The group was joined by JazzFest Berlin Artistic Director Nils Landgren, Kongsberg Jazz Festival award-winning bassist Ellen Andrea Wang, Echo Jazz Newcomer of the Year Eva Klesse and Swedish Jazz Final Best Soloist Award recipient Bjoern Atle Anfinsen. It is worth mentioning that the joint concert of successful Georgian and German musicians was transmitted live on French-German TV channel ARTE.
