While staying with a Chechen family in Pankisi, my tour guide put her mp3 player to work. I wish I could have asked the locals what they thought of my half Indonesian, half German guide blasting out the national anthem of the Chechen Republic Ichkeria. Unfortunately, that opportunity didn’t arise. This might have been due to the fact that the DJ was also my translator. Below there’s a selection of the songs we listened to while staying with an incredibly accommodating and hospitable local family.
A modern Georgian pop song with an awesome music video that mixes traditional with modern dances. I wish I knew what the lyrics were about.
