|Eurovision Song Contest|
Iriao, also known as Ethno-Jazz Band Iriao, is a Georgian jazz/enthno folk group led by David Malazonia who have been active since 2013. They are known for their unique style due to the combination of traditional Georgian polyphonic singing and jazz.
In December 2017, they were internally selected to represent their home country at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon with the song "Sheni gulistvis". As Eurovision rules state that only six performers can be onstage, one member was left out and they performed in the second semi final but failed to qualify for the final as they finished in last place.
