How is Armenian music perceived in the world today? How is Armenian music presented in the world? At this present time, how successful are Armenian musicians? What should be the future of Armenian music?
Armenian music is used as a vehicle for presenting Armenian culture. Music can be analyzed as a component of an overall cultural strategy. Also considered is the interrelationship between music and education. These themes and others are presented in a live discussion on the show. The show features well-known Armenian composers and performers.
Since 2012, the culture of Armenia is also represented on international stages by the efforts of the Naghash Ensemble where the Armenian spirit meets with the world rhythms. This combination was heard and made alive by the founder of the Naghash, American-Armenian composer, pianist and conductor John Hodian. The ensemble consists of singers Hasmik Baghdasaryan, Tatevik Movsesyan, and Arpine Ter-Petrosyan, as well as of Emmanuel Hovhannisyan (duduk), Aramayis Nikoghosyan (oud), and Tigran Hovhannisyan (dhol).
