The Wider Image: Musicians fleeing Russia find a new audience in Georgia
Grigory Dobrynin, 38, who is the drummer of the Russian band SBPCh, 38, looks at books at a street vendor in Tbilisi, Georgia, November 25, 2022. Dobrynin now spends much of his time teaching and playing the drums at Practica, a rehearsal space in Tbilisi that organisers designed as a meeting place for musicians from Georgia and abroad. "I don't consider teaching to be a step backwards for me. Teaching and playing in a band are just different things they cannot be compared," he said. "(But) to be honest, I really miss the gigs and the concerts. It's a big loss for me." REUTERS/Maxim Shemetov SEARCH "SHEMETOV GEORGIA MUSICIANS" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
