An evening with
Miqayel Voskanyan and Friends

Miqayel Voskanyan & Friends is a jazz-folk band based in Yerevan, Armenia. The band was formed with the goal of introducing jazz to the tar (a folk instrument used across the Caucasus and Iran). Their music fuses old and new to produce something wholly unique - an alluring concoction of jazz, folk, rock, and classic Armenian melodies.
