Born in Poti, near Lake Paliastomi in Georgia, Nino Gvilia is a singer-songwriter whose lyrics range between ecology and politics, bodies and love.
Her songs, influenced by folk and minimalism, with use of magnetic tapes and field recordings have appeared in movies such as Martin J. Keats’ Eschatology and have graced stages in Europe and the US.
Nino Gvilia collaborates steadily with Zevi Bordovach (synth / keyboards) and Pietro Caramelli (electric guitar / vocals) with whom she is about to release her first album manifesto, NICOLE.
But Nino Gvilia does not exist.
Nino Gvilia is a fictional character on whom young filmmaker Edmund LaVache is making the mockumentary “Songwriting in times of a global crisis”. Nino Gvilia responds to interviews, composes and performs in public in situations somewhere between concert and talk.
