Georgia's Electronic Revelation…
Ekala is Ekaterina Matchavariani, from Tbilisi in the beautiful Eurasian republic of Georgia. With 4 full length albums under her belt, more than 150 released tracks on labels such as CR2, System Recordings, Piso Records, Celestial recordings and more, she’s quite the opposite of a newcomer.
She was only 7 years old when was stunned by the electronic music of Kraftwerk. Although perhaps too young to realise it then, this was the beginning of her calling to musician-hood – feeling that her whole world was rocked by sound. This single phenomenon in her childhood played a key role in defining her future musical direction.
Later in life, she started experimenting with minimal sounds and different types of electronic music, from chillout to techno. Even today Ekala experiences different inspirations and is in constant search of finding ways to express it in music. How she feels, every stage of life she conquers, every step of her spiritual trip, she expresses in every beat, every note of her music.
