... and verry special. though there are similarities to georgian, norvegian, medieval, klassical, rock and new music, to minimal music, meredith monk, björk, and a lot more, this music is not just a mixture of influences, but something of its own, something new.
experiments with voice and expression, deeply connected to memories, people, places or the moode of a special moment. allways telling something - with words that do sound like a real language, but are mostly nither georgian, nor norvegian or any other language, but just "telling sound".
The cover of the cd looks different: same pikture, but different design: blue.

This text is from the Label, "Peregrina Music":
"In her music, Russudan Meipariani interweaves the sounds of
her Georgian home with New Music and Scandinavian tones.
This debut album, "Lieder aus einer Insel", documents the inner
process of finding herself between emotional and real worlds.
The onomatopoeic nature of the songs is magically expressive.
After studying in Germany with Wolfgang Rihm, she spent two
exchange semesters at the Conservatory in Oslo and studied
for one year with Lasse Thoresen. This stay in Norway was a
great inspiration to her; having not done so for a long
time, she started to sing again and began to develop her
very own onomatopoeic song. On her return to Germany, she
continued to concentrate on her voice and composed the
"Lieder aus einer Insel" cycle."
