Making Heritage – Ժառանգութիւն

“work in progress” 2022

After my first cd Traces , for this second project, I have arranged twelve Armenian traditional songs, which collected by Komitas (1869-1936) also spelled Gomidas, for a string quartet and recorded with the duduk (an ancient Armenian double reed woodwind instrument made of apricot wood) and voice. The album features joyful yet melancholic songs of homesickness.
