Hi everyone! I'm not very familiar with armenian music but from the little I know... I love it...
ego wrote:Arto Tuncboyaciyan, known in Turkey as Tuncboyaci, is a great Armenian composer too. Some of his songs became very famous here when sung by Greek singers. I remember one song "ta kormia kai ta maxairia" (the bodies and the knives) by E. Arvanitaki. He has composed lots of songs for Sezen Aksu too
ego, I was just going to mention the - so talented - Armenian composers that have collaborated with Eleftheria Arvanitaki
(who happens to be my most favorite greek artist!) numerous times in the last... 10 (or more?) years! Arto Tuncboyaciyan
as you said and Ara Dinkjian
. In fact Eleftheria's whole album "/Ta kormia ke ta maheria/ The bodies and the knives" consists of Ara's music ONLY. It truly is one of my all-time-favorite albums.
I was wondering, how famous is Ara over there, in Armenia?
Greetings from Greece =)
