In 1993, in the aftermath of the Georgian Civil War, the family moved to Belfast, Northern Ireland, where her father took up a position at the prestigious Royal Victoria Hospital. Whilst dwelling in Belfast, Melua attended Roman Catholic schools, St. Catherine’s Primary School and Dominican College, Fortwilliam, while her younger brother attended Protestant schools. The family moved yet again to Redhill, Surrey, in 1998, although Melua recently moved out of the family home in favour of an apartment in the Paddington area of London, where she has transformed the spare bedroom into a recording studio. For that reason of her different upbringing at an early age, Melua can speak three languages: Georgian, Russian and English.
