Iriao is an ethno-fusion band founded in Tbilisi, Georgia. The band’s repertoire is based on Georgian polyphonic music and harmony, saturated with jazz and modern music elements.
The group's name is derived from a phrase, "Iriao-uruao" which comes the famous yodeling singing style "Krimanchuli" of Georgian traditional polyphonic music.
David Malazonia is the band leader and he was one of the first composers introducing this music genre in Georgia. Iriao’s debut performance took place in 2013 in Tbilisi and the group have gained recognition internationally ever since.
Over the years Iriao has been invited to a number of important musical festivals around the globe. The band has performed at the Java Jazz Festival in Indonesia, Borneo Jazz Festival in Malaysia, Alfa Jazz Festival in Ukraine and other festivals in Austria, Poland and the Baltics.

Something ends and there comes a new start kindness will live forever on the earth for youfor lovefor just one flashwe go on our way
All is yours, what you share
