Coming off of her solo release NOMAD (Ni Fu Ni Fa Records 2014) and radio appearances on WBEZ, 93XRT, WHPK, Fearless Radio, Radio Tavisupleba (Prague), Radio Shokoladi (Tbilisi), as well as international acclaim in magazines and newspapers (City Magazine, Sakartvelos Respublica, The Chronicle, OnAxis Music), singer/songwriter Nino Arobelidze infuses her unique brand of soul and R &B with elements of Jazz and World Music wowing audiences across demographics. "Nino Arobelidze is a wonder. You cannot know unless you go and hear for yourself." -Andy Willis (Chicago artist).
"Nino Arobelidze Creates New Crossroads Between Pop, Jazz, Soul and Damn Good Beat Boxing" writes Hannah Frank (OnAxis Music) "Nino, a U.S./Georgian musician and vocalist who grew up overseas, represents how dynamic, rhythmic and lyrical exploration created beauty with her new album NOMAD. Smooth jazz fans, R&B Hip Hop aficionados, EDM troubadours, genuine rock and roll lovers and spoken word listeners all find themselves sitting appreciatively at the altar of NOMAD”.
Hailing from Tbilisi-Georgia, Nino Arobelidze moved to Chicago to make music and develop her sound. While still studying classical vocal performance at DePaul University Music School, Nino became the first vocalist to be an Artist in Residence at the North Shore Hotel in Evanston, where she held a weekly lecture/performance series for three years. Her time is currently occupied with her solo project and her side project- Forbidden Knowledge. Nino's 2014 release NOMAD is co-produced by Pablo Gordy- Ni Fu Ni Fa Records.
Nino’s voice is often described as pure and effortless with a timeless vintage twist. While her imaginative phrasing and swagger are reminiscent of a skilled instrumentalist, her treatment of language is driven by the power of words and the magic of subtlety.
