Armenian culture meets Cuban spirit for a knock-out Folk Jazz project featuring world renowned pianist Hilario Durán
Music expresses the emotions, culture and ideas of the nation, and Armenian music is no exception. With rich history that spans folk, religious, pop, classical and everything in between, Armenian music expresses the temperament, happiness, sorrow, wanderings and dreams of its people. However, Armenian music isn’t only felt and understood by Armenians. Over the centuries, more and more nations and countries around the world have listened to, admired and adapted this music. It has proven to be universal language of communication of the myriad of emotions.
