EgAri features the trio collaborating with Georgian folk musicians, singers and a dancer in pursuit of a quintessentially Georgian, yet unmistakably modern, sound. EgAri is shaped around traditional Georgian instrumental styles, polyphonic vocals, and folk dance. It unites them for the first time ever in a brilliant aural and visual display. EgAri is a non-conventional hybrid of archaic and modern elements, Caucasian and non-indigenous instruments, startling Georgian harmonies and more familiar jazz threads. For The Shin, only a music which continuously evolves can survive. It is in this spirit that the musicians perceive themselves not as threats to, but as guardians of, Georgian tradition.
