"Whose floorboards? Whose stage? What is being performed?

Saturday 21 APRIL



One of those cases where an artist had to go abroad to really connect to the music of his home in the first place – as Armenian singer Eileen Khatchadourian tells among other things in her little "Music of Armenia" portrait. Coming off her different explorations is a powerful mix of many ingredients from Armenian traditions to Indie Rock and beyond. Special Guest – fellow Armenian Emirsian
