Blind Date: Ilusha Tsinadze

Friday, May 27, 2011

To kick off Soundcheck's "Blind Date" series, we’ve set you, the listener, up on a radio date with American jazz guitarist-turned-Georgian folk star Ilusha Tsinadze. His just-released debut album, "Deda Ena" (“Mother Tongue”), offers a fresh take on traditional folk songs from his native country. He’ll join us with his band to attempt to win over the hearts—and ears—of our listeners.


To learn more about our first blind date, check out the questionnaire below.

I sure wish my (thankfully long ago) blind dates had been as much fun as that! Ilusha is a wonderful teacher, friend, and musician, and I'd "go out" with him again!

Wow - I ran into Ilusha in February in Prospect park while shooting a short film - and ended up shooting a music video for him right there in the snow....small world.
