“Armenian music is very similar to European style music. However, Armenian music uses ancient instruments, which grab my attention.”

“Armenian music sounds very Middle Eastern, but different from other cultures because of the oud. When I hear Armenian music I always think of my grandmother and how music is so important in Armenian culture.”

“Armenian music to me is more than a rhythm and a melody; to me Armenian music tells a story of our past, future, and present. I don’t feel that way with any other music because I have a special place in my heart for the beautiful words of an Armenian song.”

“I would describe Armenian music as fun! It is amazing to watch everyone at parties dance to the same music that has been passed down from generation to generation. It is what makes us special as a culture and makes Armenian music different than any other type of music.”
