AllMusic Review by

Armenian music is mainly sung. It is said that everyone sings in Armenia and for all occasions. Their music has had many influences from the diverse countries surrounding them (Asia, Middle East, Russia, and more) while remaining typical to their spirit. The Armenian popular music is sung either in solo or accompany with few instruments. They have three genres of songs: peasant songs, city songs, and bard epic songs. Their songs recount in music their everyday situations, preoccupations, and struggles; they can also accompany dances. This CD also features the duduk, a well-known languorous Armenian oboe. The soul of a people in music.
