  • The Shin is a fusion jazz band that was formed in 1998 in Germany by members Zaza Miminoshvili, Zurab J. Gagnidze, and Mamuka Gagnidze. Despite having most of their success in Germany, “shin” means “home” in Georgian.

    Mariko Ebralidze is a notable jazz singer in Georgia. After receiving a degree in music as a soloist, Mariko received a degree as a music teacher. Mariko manages to juggle her life as a teacher with her club performances.


  • In early 2014, Georgian broadcaster GPB announced that they had internally selected the fusion jazz group “The Shin,” along with Mariko Ebralidze, as their representative for the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

    In February, The Shin and Mariko recorded their entry “Three Minutes to Earth”  in Stuttgart, Germany. On March 14, the official music video for their entry, also filmed in Stuttgart, was finally revealed.


  • Home, home, through the star trail of a lonely star,

    home to the Earth where we belong, belong to …

    Dazzling light of mankind’s emotion:

    Show us the stairway to come back to Earth – sky diver’s space jump!

    Lead those three minutes longin’ for love,

    Peace and light everywhere …

    Pick up all the rainbow buds from the sky,

    All the tries, all the whys,

    Three minutes to Earth for you and for me.

    Show us the stairway to come back to Earth – sky diver’s space jump!

    Lead those three minutes longin’ for love,

    Peace and light everywhere …

    Show us the stairway to come back to Earth – sky diver’s space jump!

    Dress up the stairway to Earth with no sigh -rock the boat of ragged despair!

    Pick up all the rainbow buds from the sky,

    hear the chime – now’s the time:

    Three minutes time to Earth for you and me

    take our breath away as we fly …

    Anytime. Anywhere. We are going SHIN.
