Georgia name their Eurovision pick


Happy New Year Eurovision fans. And what better way to kick it off with news from Georgia?

How do you fancy a mix of jazz and Georgian ethno folk? If you said you’d like that very much, 2018 is already shaping up to be your year.

Broadcaster GPB has picked a band called Iriao for Lisbon.

Founder – and composer – David Malazonia is considered to be one of the finest Georgian composers. For the last 30 years, he’s been working in TV and theatre, as well as writing for Iriao and other musicians in both Georgia and Germany.

And yes, there are seven likely lads in that picture, so one of them will have to go. My money is on that chap with the terribly modern-looking radio he clearly mis-bid for on eBay.
