The Seventh Veil is one of Artie Barsamian's most popular recordings. Barsamian's musical career began at the age of 8 when his father(a well-known violinist) bought him his first clarinet. Under his father's direction, Artie became a serious student of Armenian and Middle Eastern music. Eventually, Barsamian became nationally recognized not only for his Middle Eastern music playing but his Big Band sounds.
