Who is Mariam Bigvava?

Mariam is a 11 singer from Tbilisi. She has been perfecting folk songs and traditional instruments.

Mariam enjoys listening to Billie Eilish and playing football. She lives with her pet parrot Shako and a dog named Maze.

How did she get selected?

The Georgian national final Ranina has been used to selected the country’s Junior Eurovision artist since 2018. The contest started in April (before even the adult contest I know!) with 10 artists had competed in 4 rounds. They were then whittled down to 6 for the semi final and 4 for the final. They were Nikoloz Kharati, Vache GhviniashvilliOto Bazerashvilli and of cource, Mariam Bigvava. In the end Mariam won after singing a cover of “Asetia es tskhovreba” (This is how this life is).

Tell us about the song!

I Believe‘ is about peace and wishing for war to stop, a theme I’m sure many can relate to in modern times. Lyrics such as “We will be in one house” and “It’s just a simple peace, I wish it for the world” symbolise Mariam’s desire for the world to come together in peace and harmony.
