The Shin's latest project, Egari ("That's it!" in Georgian), features the trio collaborating with Georgian folk musicians, singers and a dancer in pursuit of a quintessentially Georgian, yet unmistakably modern, sound. EgAri is shaped around traditional Georgian instrumental styles, polyphonic vocals, and folk dance. It unites them for the first time ever in a brilliant aural and visual display. EgAri is a non-conventional hybrid of archaic and modern elements, Caucasian and non-indigenous instruments, startling Georgian harmonies and more familiar jazz threads. For The Shin, only a music which continuously evolves can survive. It is in this spirit that the musicians perceive themselves not as threats to, but as guardians of, Georgian tradition. EgAri is a showcase for a handful of Georgia's most outstanding musicians. It reinitiates a peaceful dialogue between East and West, old and new, "ours" and "theirs"-a dialogue which has existed in Georgian culture for centuries. It is possible to experience this dialogue in the poetry of Shota Rustaveli, the paintings of Niko Pirosmani, the architecture of Tbilisi, the choreography of George Balanchine, the films of Otar Ioseliani, and yes... ...the music of The Shin.
