Miqayel Voskanyan and Friends

Historic Theatre

July 14th @ 8pm

Miqayel Voskanyan and Friends is an ethno-jazz and folk band based in Yerevan, Armenia. The band was formed in 2011 with the goal of introducing jazz to the tar (a folk instrument used across the Caucasus and Iran), immediately standing out as a fresh, modern sound in world music. Voskanyan takes the lead on the tar, known for its long neck and soothing tones. Although historically heard in traditional folk music, Voskanyan’s band has given the tar a new identity and, as a result, has created a new genre of music that fuses old and new to produce something wholly unique – an alluring concoction of jazz, folk, rock, and classic Armenian melodies.
