Girl Named Nino is Nino Arobelidze's latest project. It is a band, a person and now, an album. Nino Arobelidze's sound combines Soul, Indie-rock, Jazz and World Music, creating a unique musical experience that is being dubbed a must-see by concert-goers.
Nino, being a Tbilisi born Chicago based singer, songwriter and producer moved to the U.S. as a teenager and while attending DePaul University Music School put together her first group, The CrossRoads Project. It was the Strange Brew EP release with The CrossRoads Project that started gaining a loyal fan following for the young artist.
Nino's solo full length release, NOMAD in 2014 established her as an artist to watch among numerous media outlets while her live performances continued to gain momentum with listeners. "In each of her songs you can hear the underlying of jazz cruising over the cool, subtle beats" wrote Cynthia Crawford (The Chronicle), while Tony Sarabia of WBEZ compared Nino's voice to Billie Holiday's ( WorldView).
Building on her first Girl Named Nino national tour that earned her impressive accolades spanning from L.A. to NYC, Nino returns to The Mint LA, joined by Pablo Gordy on electric guitar and surprise guests (TBA).
