THE ARMENIAN TEAM

 

When I first traveled to Armenia in 2012, I was charmed by all the traditional instruments that I have heard and I was also moved to see the young musicans were eager to keep their tradional music alive.

I went to 2 concerts in Erevan and Gumri and I met Rasa-lila and Edgar. 

They have played on the song "Sooner or later".. When I went back to Erevan in october 2013, wehn,  the plane landed, I had tears of joy. I wanted to write a song of hope for Armenia and its people..
