Photo Series: Tbilisi’s Underground

Georgia's capital Tbilisi has a vivid electronic music scene. Although more and more artists are involved, there are hardly any official live venues in the city. Watch Jan Chudozilov's photo series about informal music spaces.

Since 2017 I have been photographing concerts of experimental electronic music in Georgia’s capital Tbilisi. Electronic music emerged in Georgia in the ’90ies. While in the beginning there were only a small number of people involved, in recent years general interest and the number of producers started to increase significantly. Still, there are not many venues for live music. Therefore, concerts most often happen in more informal places like art galleries, bars, private spaces or restaurants.
