When she was a little girl, she used to play a secret game alone, pretending she was a singer and captivating music-lovers abound. She played this game almost every day. Years have flown by, and the game became reality, her most burning desire of becoming a singer now fulfilled.
When Salome Korkotashvili first appeared on stage several years ago, she immediately captured music-lovers with her soft, sweet, warm voice and tasteful music. Salome has since expanded her skills, made some changes to her image and broadened her horizons by travelling worldwide and meeting with renowned musicians and music professionals. She says it’s difficult to establish a name on the world scene; because aside from talent, one needs to work hard, move forward and never stop.
There were some really important highlights in Korkotashvili’s career recently: at the beginning of summer, she was invited to sing at a special event organized by the US Embassy in Washington, where she sang the national anthem of the United States. As the musician noted afterwards, she has never sung so emotionally before and, consequently, her performance was praised highly. Another significant event happened not long ago and Salome left again for the US at the invitation of Dark Horse Recording Studio. Her first destination is Nashville, and the next Wire Road Studio in Houston, where Salome will be accompanied by several musicians, among them Deon Estus, former bassist of George Michael, who also played with Michael Jackson.
When she was a little girl, she used to play a secret game alone, pretending she was a singer and captivating music-lovers abound. She dreamed a lot while listening to her favorite musicians: Nina Simone, Sarah Vaughan, Aretha Franklin, Billie Holiday, Ray Charles… She doesn’t stop dreaming now and one of her burning desires is to perform at the Glastonbury Festival of contemporary performing arts. Hopefully, one day, this dream of hers will also come true.
