ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Inspiring and very fresh instrumental acoustic arrangements of Armenian folk music & pieces from Komitas, Kh. Avetisyan, with duduk, shvi, cello, flute, guitar, percussions.

The originators of this idea were Tigran and Vardan, who wanted to promote interest in Armenian traditional music and its legendary instrument - the duduk. They decided to do this by introducing it into "modernity", through new arrangements consisting of a dialogue between traditional and classical instruments.
This music tells and sings 'Armenia'

Arax nous propose une musique différente de ce que nous avons l’habitude d’écouter. Le groupe s’est créé pour faire découvrir la musique traditionnelle arménienne et ainsi ressusciter un de ses instruments typiques : le doudouk.
Un voyage world aux accents acoustiques qui incite au repos, à la détente ou au rêve. Côté instruments, Arax (composé de musiciens belges et arméniens) se partage entre les classiques comme la guitare acoustique ou le violoncelle et les arméniens comme le doudouk.
Le CD comprend des airs traditionnels mais aussi des reprises de deux musiciens arméniens célèbres. Pour son premiere album "La Brise", le groupe a reçu, lors des Armenian Music Awards 2005 (Los Angeles), le prix du meilleur album dans la catégorie 'world fusion'.

Crossing sings Armenia
Crossing truly sings Armenia. Tigran and Vardan continue to inspire with their arrangements for the duduk. A must have CD for every Armenian household.
