A long wait for the Georgian Eurovision song
On New Year’s Eve last year, Georgia announced that the band Iriao would represent them at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest. Iriao are a Georgian group. Their members are: David Malazonia, Nugzar Kavtaradze, Bidzina Murgulia, Levan Abshilava, Shalva Gelekva, George Abashidze, and Mikheil Javakhishvili. The name “Iriao” is derived from the Georgian phrase “Iriao-uruao”, which is used in the yodelling singing style “Krimanchuli”.
For their song however, we had to wait until the very end of the preselection season.
