The Tagharan program is dedicated to the spiritual and folk branches of Armenian music. At the heart of the creation of the program is the idea of kinship of these two branches, which was first scientifically dealt with by Komitas. In the episodes of the program, we consider the relationship between Armenian folk and sacred music branches, present the stages of their historical development and their genre manifestations, describe the music component of folk and Church rites, reflect on the most important works of Church singing art as well as discuss actual problems of Armenian medieval studies and folklore with specialists.
The episode is dedicated to the dance songs of the book comprised by Bedros Alahaydoyan "Musical and Ethnographic Collection of Palu (and the Region)" (Glendale, 2009, performer of songs, Maro Nalbandian). The guest of our program is Arusyak Sahakyan, the editor of the book, folklorist specializing in epos, who also deciphered the texts of musical-folklore samples in this collection.
