An exploration of the rich tradition of Armenian folk music forged in the long historical shadow of Mt. Ararat--from Anatolian wedding dance to Transcaucasian lullaby, pagan ritual melody to bardic love song. The Shoghaken Ensemble is Armenia's preeminent group performing this music today, playing on traditional instruments in a lyrical style that captures the haunting beauty of one of the world's oldest musical legacies. Musicians include Gevorg Dabaghyan, Armenia's greatest living duduk player, and the renowned folk singer Hasmik Harutyunyan. Deluxe packaging includes 20 pages of historical notes, pictures and song translations.
