If you once have a chance to saw them live in Europe or in Georgia, even in Russia or Ukraine, from Siberia to Baltic you will never forget them and the reason is that positive energy, original sound and skillfully playing of each musician, notably bands former superb guitarist Gocha Kacheishvili whose playing is the Intelligence of Guitar, he is the most desirable musician around with whom collaboration means a lot, he is the creative, skillful, provoking, best accompaniator and arranger, also a painter, smartly incorporates new ideas into music and never bewares of experimentalism with the band, he is the real Master and his music is amazing and deserves attention, ear, and comesthrough his free emotions and mood.

Albums:

Nino Katamadze, Insight. Green.


Very transparent, juicy, quiet and confident and yet full of irrepressible life – this is what this work appears like. Stylistically, it continues the trend including the albums "Black" and "Red" – the pure jazz-rock line, with no direct immersions into the lounge or symphonicity. But in a much softer, tender version.

Nino Katamadze, Insight. Yellow.


..And there ever is love for the music – no matter where musicians roam following the quest while working on new material. Yellow. Life-giving. Hot and humid. Warm. Dry and mirage-like. Joyful. Acute. Crumbling. Spicy. Soft. Diverse and – alive... Listen.
