”Musical Background” is a show where we talk about Christian singers, song writers and worship songs. In every show, we discuss the stories behind worship songs and why they were written, also it is important to mention that most of the hymns are written based on bible verses. Although, sometimes we change our format and we tell stories about famous Christian singers and bands. “Musical Background” is popular in Georgian society, especially in youths.

Reasons why the program

“Musical Background” is important

  • Christian songs are not widespread in Georgia and the youth mostly listen to secular songs. This show, first of all, does much to popularize Christian music. It talks about different genres of music and it is an effective means of sharing God’s Word with the people who love music.
  • Famous Christian singers, songwriters and composers the world knows are lesser-known here in Georgia. This program presents those people to the Georgian audience. It talks about their testimonies, encourages and motivates people to listen to Christian songs that declare God’s glory.
  • Many different Christian songs are translated in to the Georgian language by the protestant churches of our country and sung by their choirs. But most of them do not know the Biblical verses and stories behind these songs, stories of personal experiences and personal relationships with God that inspirited Christian music. Musical Background talks about those songs too that are already translated into Georgian and are popular in protestant churches here. Thus, this program is of education character too and it spreads the knowledge about Christian music.
  • The only accepted form of singing Christian hymns is that which Georgian Christian Orthodox Church recognizes. Musical Background is the first program in the history of the country that talks more widely about Christian hymns and songs. The program presents different genres of Christian music such as gospel, Christian rock, worship and so on, thus opening the way for Georgian protestant singers who are very gifted and anointed in worshipping the Lord by using different genres of Christian music.


How “Musical Background” is shot


Mariam Gogichashvili is the program presenter. She works half-time for Georgian Christian Channel and apart from working on Musical Background, she translates Christian news for Georgian Christian Channel website.


The videographer and cameraman of the program is Sandro Dumbadze who works full-time for the Channel and apart from working on the program, does much work of shooting videos and editing them.


Producer of the program is Guja Chachanidze who is the leader of Georgian Christian Channel and apart from Musical Background deals with organizational issues.


There are 10 members in a show's creative team of which 7 members are volunteers and the other 3 are working in the Christian Channel. They plan the show, select Christian songs, translate them, edit the texts and work together on the program.

Despite the fact that several episodes of the program “Musical Background” were shot and the team is working on the next episode, the shooting process is pretty difficult because of the lack of human resources and technical equipment.

The program is shot with the only camera that Christian Channel owns. The same camera is also used for shooting other TV programs, Christian videos, and clips. That's why the shooting process is detained sometimes.

In addition, close-up shots and full shots are necessary for shooting the program and it requires a minimum of two video cameras. Because the ministry has got only one, shooting one episode of the program takes twice as much time and energy.

The ministry does not have studio teleprompters for the presenter to read the text. That is why the presenter has to learn several pages of the text by heart and record it twice that is very labor-intensive. Because of the above-mentioned reasons shooting the 10-minute-length program takes hours.

The program is shot in the Georgian Christian Channel's office. But as long as the studio is very small and 8 members of Christian Channel work there, The shooting process is done after hours or at the weekend. At the same time, for the shooting, it's necessary to use green screens, lights, and other equipment and after the work is done to take them back. It really slows the shooting process down and hampers the shooting quality.

As for the human resource, the presenter of the program works half-time for the Georgian Christian Channel, and apart from Musical Background she works on translating Christian news; the cameraman and videographer works full-time for the Georgian Christian Channel and he too has to do many other projects apart from the mentioned program.

The team of the program Musical Background consists of seven volunteers who want to make their contribution in glorifying the Lord through this program.
