Green Room • მწვანე ოთახი is a musical project formed Achiko Guledani and Beka Japaridze in 1999 in Tbilisi, Georgia. The band gained an immediate success after releasing hits like “Nazi Misebi” & “Chemtan Agar Khar” and remains as one of the most popular Georgian bands up-to-date. Their music combines variety of Pop, Funk and Jazz.
The band had released two albums before they suspended the project in 2005:
“Mtsvane Otakhi” (2001) & “Shutdown” (2003), both of which are still among top-selling Georgian albums.
In 2019, Green Room • მწვანე ოთახი made a comeback after a 15-year break. Joined by singer Uma J (Gvantsa Japaridze) and 4 instrumentalists, now ‘Mtsvane Otakhi’ is formed as a 7-piece band. The band is working on its third studio album, which will be released in Fall 2021.
Name “Mtsvane Otakhi” means ‘green room’ in Georgian – the place where the band was formed back in 1999.
