Lavrent lives in Tianeti, a provincial capital set amidst rolling hills and rivers. He was born and raised there, and sang for years in the regional choir.
Today, Lavrent owns the local mill on the outskirts of town where he works every day. He lives with his wife, an avid gardener, in a house surrounded by roses.
