Georgian-born singer and guitarist Ilusha Tsinadze [ცინაძე] brings his multicultural story of dreams and discovery to the stage through a captivating take on Georgia’s venerable music traditions. At the age of 8, Ilusha immigrated to New York, leaving behind the Georgian Civil War – yet taking with him a rich cultural history that has remained an essential part of his own. Known today for his warm stage presence and soulful voice, Ilusha invites audiences to see through his eyes as he introduces village songs into conversation with the global city. Hauntingly beautiful Georgian melodies interweave with contemporary American musical elements: a mirror of living with one foot in New York City, the other in a little nation on the Black Sea. Since releasing his debut album Deda Ena (Mother Tongue) in 2011, Ilusha has gained a loyal following through US tours, and national fame in Georgia with festival and TV performances.
“…invites audiences to experience heritages that are simultaneously global and local” - NY Times
