After two sold-out concerts and a grand success at Carnegie Hall - People's Artist of Georgia and Russia - once again in America!
Tamara Gverdtsiteli, one of the world’s most popular Georgian/Russian singers, will perform at Wilshire Ebell Theatre on March 19th.
Gverdtsiteli is a crossover artist whose repertoire also includes popular songs and the classics. She sang Carmen in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine, in a production that had a three-year run.
Hailed as the ‘Russian Edith Piaf’, she brings her expressiveness to her renditions of popular songs. “These are songs you can’t perform without putting your soul into them,” she said.
She loves jazz and says it’s influenced every singer in the 20th century, “because jazz music is brilliant, a phenomenon that touched everybody.”
Gverdtsiteli, who was born in Tbilisi, Georgia, and has lived in Paris and New York, moved to Moscow 18 years ago, where her career took off and her recordings produced some hits.
“I am lucky that I have some composers who create the songs for me, and these songs truly become mine,” she said. “They create them, taking into consideration my voice, my manner of singing, my emotional side, everything.”
Gverdtsiteli described her life as a musician as pretty intense. She performs frequently, tours Russia and Europe, and has played the Kremlin Palace in Moscow, Carnegie Hall in New York City, and the Olympia Hall in Paris. She’s usually working on a new album and constantly experimenting with different musical genres.
