It has been two years since 24 years old musician and pianist Gigi Chipashvili, known under the name Gigi Wonder, returned to Georgia from USA. People love his music for its tenderness and Gigi inspired by this is very productive – writes songs and performs live.
He plays piano from the age 6. Gigi got his scholarship from New England Conservatory when he was 18 years old and has spent 2 years there learning and meeting world famous musicians – John Mayer, Billy Joel and Barbra Streisand, but the most significant feeling in his life was the experience from seeing and meeting the legendary musician Stevie Wonder.
At master classes Wonder picked 6 talented students, including Gigi and invited them to his concert and reception afterwards. During the concert all of a sudden he called musician to the stage and performed six songs with them. It was an unforgettable moment for Gigi. Newspapers wrote about Georgian musician and called him “White Stevie Wonder from Georgia!” during concerts people introduced him as Gigi Wonder and this stage name follows him to afterwards.
