While, I still don't know where is the most appropriate section to host this topic, I couldn't resist to post a link to a great French-Armenian dancers and Dance Troupe that few mounts ago made a great furor at Le Theatre National "Ivan Vazov" in Sofia, Bulgaria. Friend of mine attended the event and said it was awsome. After the concert the participants and fans and the public chased them to the restourant that they were suppose to rest and the party started all over again, this time with the public and everybody dancing.

Hey Gams!
When is the last time I told you; “You are wonderful, full of wonder”?
Where do you find these wonderful sites?
Why is it that every time I watch such beauty I must have a box of Kleenex handy?
Yes, yes. I know. I’m an old fool. I just recently saw Anush at the Yerevan Opera House, and I had to leave the hall several times, just s I did some ten years ago because I did not have enough Kleenexes in my pocket.
The most beautiful of the whole thing are those those beautiful boys and girls, and the music is played with traditional Armenian instruments like duduk, zurna and dhol. No Zilji-oglu cymbals, no Yamaha keyboards….and so on.
Some time ago I was deeply embroiled in debates of what traditional Armenian Music and Dance is. The debate was about advertising “Armenian Nights“ emphasizing “belly dancing”. Can you see any bellies in the above tapes? Do you see any more than those “big Armenian noses” oops.gif , smile.gif smile.gif (don’t shoot me, it's a joke), or past the tips of their fingers?
How beautiful!!!
And…. One of the tapes features Kochari. Where is Robert Kochar(ian)? smile.gif smile.gif
Is that the same dance our troops performed at the Brandenburg Gate in may of 1945??

And of course Tamzara - equally dear to Armenians and Greeks!

You dare post this.
Yes, yes! I love the nazelajem movement of those beautiful aghchiks doing the “tamarza”, yes tamarza/tomarza, not tamzara,( I can write about it, if I have not already done) you give us sites that feature noise created by oud-kak, dumb-kak, clari-kak and git-kak. In the Arabic culture the clarinet is known as "ghrnata/Granada, how far is that from Yerevan?
Where are the duduks, zurnas, dhols, kamanchas, shvis, srings, sazes, tars and kanons?
Does anyone remember those instruments anymore?
I bet you MosJan does!!
Can we get over ourTurkish, Ottoman, Arabic … (musical) heritage already, and get back to the likes of the saz and kamancha of Sayat Nova!!!
