Katie Melua / Gori Women’s Choir – The Little
Swallow (Christmas2016 Live Norton Graham UK.) VIP`s
In a 2104 interview in the travel section of the Telegraph, Melua said that “the Georgians will treat [visitors] like royalty, and the odds are you’ll do a lot of eating, drinking and toasting.” She recommended traditional Tbilisi bathouses such as Chreli Abano, popular with famous historic visitors such as Alexandre Dumas and Pushkin, where one is privately massaged and washed in private rooms, directed tourists to the British House Hotel and suggested they eat khinkali dumplings and other local dishes at the Kartuli Sakhli or Tsiskvili, and enjoy some cool modern Georgian jazz at the Café Kala.
Katie Melua also strongly recommended listening to some of Georgia’s unique polyphonic choral music which is on offer in some the magnificent churches, but also as an accompaniment to dinner at the highly recommended Phaetoni restaurant.
