Kyiv Post

Georgia’s best jazz voice Nino Katamadze is much loved in Ukraine. She also seems to make good money here because she comes frequently and her concerts tend to sell out. This time, however, she will give an open-air concert in the official fan zone of Euro 2012 on Khreshchatyk Street.

The 38-year-old singer will be accompanied by Insight jazz band and will perform  musical compositions of her own. Her music is a mix of Georgian and modern world music schools, with surprising, strong, emotional and deep vocals. It has been defined as jazz, rock, pop and psychedelia.
Katamadze’s warm-up act will be the band Mgzavrebi, a modern Georgian jazz band. 

Nino Katamadze & Insight. June 20. Euro 2012 official fan zone. 7 p.m. Hr 150-1,600
