Artist Profiles: Lela Tataraidze

Lela Tataraidze grew up in a family of musicians from Tusheti, the mountainous region of Georgia. With her sad eyes but a happy face, she is an excellent accordion and panduri player, and also a brilliant vocalist, who sings the popular songs of the mountains with a lot of emotion.

She was brought up in the musical atmosphere of her family and continued her studies at the school of music and later on at the philharmonic ensemble of Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia.

At the same time, Lela works at the Regional Cultural Center of her hometown and works as the soloist of the radio and television of Tbilisi.

She founded the trio ensemble of Kesane (which means the flower of Myosotis forget-me-not) and recorded her first CD for Pan Records in Holland in 1999. Lela is accompanied by two female singers and players of panduri and dayera, Marina Giorgadze and Lia Khountsaria.
