Friendship, understanding and love in “Two Voices”

The Union of Georgians in Russia in charge of organization and presentation of the peacemaking musical project has far-reaching plans - to shoot a video of the song both in Georgia and Russia.


The song presentation looked like a ceremony touching the heartstrings of intelligentsia and eminent public figures of both countries. Political reefs could not spoil the festive atmosphere. A short time before the start of the presentation Boris Gryzlov gave the CD with the song to Zurab Nogaideli of Georgian opposition. In Tbilisi Movement for Fair Georgia leader is condemned for his frequent visits to Moscow, for the cooperation treaty with United Russia that Nogaideli recently signed. Before the song presentation Georgia's pro-government media wrote about show biz stars serving politics and composing an ode to Soviet heritage.

But the presentation showed that both the singers and organizers were driven by one thought only: lack of understanding between Georgia and Russia contradicts history and the will of the nations longing for good-neighborhood and bygone harmony. It is very likely the song will become a hymn of Russian-Georgian friendship. At any rate the musicians succeeded in what hundreds of politicians have failed. They managed to unite Russians and Georgians at one table and hear them sing along with the two performers. By the way together with the pop stars children from DoMiSolki band were singing Two Voices. Russian and Georgian kids were singing along: "Our ancestors have been friends for so many years..."
