First performed live on Georgian TV’s ‘Patrinoti 4’ in 2008, a competition to see who could write the best patriotic song for Georgia.
‘Soul of the Land’ was written by Tony, with Georgian lyrics provided by one of Georgia’s most loved and respected songwriters, Nana Kalendadze. The song came in 2nd, which wasn’t half bad for a Englishman singing on Georgian TV! For her invaluable contribution, many thanks to Nana, who had previously won the competition in 2007, and to all the many children who sang their hearts out on the recordings and TV shows.
სიყვარული და მშვიდობა ყველა! (Love and peace to all)!
