Sandro Eristavi

An accomplished guitarist, singer and composer, Sandro is equally at home in jazz, blues, classical and ethnic music. From his childhood he was immersed on one hand in classical music and jazz (his mother is a renown classical and jazz pianist Margarita Chkheidze) and on the other - in the musical culture of his native Georgia, a country famous for its breathtaking polyphonic and polyrhythmic folk music. He started his musical career in Soviet Union as a leader of a duo with his sister, vocalist Tamara Eristavi. With their unique blend of musical styles - ethnic Russian and Georgian music, folk, rock, jazz, bossa nova, tango - and Sandro’s songwriting talent, the duo quickly became popular across the country, followed by prizes in national songwriters’ competitions; documentary about the duo on National TV; recording of a soundtrack for a movie; inclusion in the encyclopedia of Russian songwriters; participation of the duo in one of the first US-Soviet Space Bridge telecasts; performances as a part of the cultural program of 12th World Festival of Youth and Students; numerous broadcasts of the duo’s performances on National radio and TV; and international tours (Germany, Poland, France). In the 90s Sandro moved to Southern California, where he released three CD albums (“Russian and Georgian Romantic Ballads” with Tamara; “Stratocaster Carols” - his renditions of popular Christmas Carols; “Blue Sharp Minor” - an album of original blues compositions) distributed by iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby. Songs from the blues album have been broadcasted numerous times on K-Jazz 88.1FM radio.
