Thanks to the unique singers and dancers of the "Erisioni" ensemble, the rich centuries-old history of Georgia comes to life on stage.

For the huge contribution to the world and Georgian culture, the Georgian people in 2010 awarded the "Erisioni" ensemble the Star of Honor, which is located in the capital of Georgia - Tbilisi - at the entrance to the State Concert Hall.

Since 2015, the artistic director of the ensemble is Shermandi Chkuaseli, while the chief choreographer is Eka Chkuaseli and the chief conductor is Jemal Chkuaseli.

Under their direction, the show program "Georgian Treasure" was created, which was presented in 2019 in China and was a huge success: the performance of Georgian artists was shown on the Chinese TV channel CCTV, where it was watched by 600 million viewers!
