“The Georgian Groove Essentials” is my attempt to cover some of Georgia’s unique musical output from the 70s and 80s. I hope you enjoy the distinct Georgian flavour in the songs, mostly recognisable in the traditional rhythmic and melodic approaches in the vocals.
Furthermore, Georgia’s Pop music had strong influences from Jazz and Rock, and musicians from the small Caucasian country weren’t shy of using western compositions and adaptations on their state-controlled albums.
The mix solely features material that has been officially released on the Soviet state label Melodia. The artwork is an adapted version of VIA 75’s album “Для Тебя Живу, Грузия Моя” from 1984.
Special thanks to William, Jay, Natia & Sven Schneider.
