Armenia, Armenia: Armenian Songs and Dances

Issued in 2004, this album is a collection of vocal and instrumental music associated with Armenia and the Middle East. Performed by Hachig Kazarian on clarinet and his ensemble, featuring John Berberian on oud, the music ranges from songs about love (“Parov Yegar Siroon Yar”) and marriage (“Aghcheegon Yeridasart”) to energetic folk dances (“Tomzara” and “Misirlou”). The liner notes give brief descriptions of each song and list the session musicians and vocalists.
