Cultures of Resistance Awardee — Georgia
Tamada is a new project from DJ/musician Lasha Chapel, a Georgian refugee from Abkhazia, that combines Georgian folk with electronic music. After ten years of playing rock ‘n’ roll, he turned to electronic music in 2015 and uses old forgotten instruments, harmonies, and rhythms, incorporating theatricality into his performances. Tamada touches on current social issues and romantic sentiments, mixing many musical directions—acoustic as well as electronic and traditional Georgian music—and has christened this distinctive new style “Deep Duqan.” The first album, Frühstück mit Tamada, was released in 2020.
Tamada received a Cultures of Resistance Award (CoR Award) and is using the award to complete his next album.
