Mazel


I hope you're not tired of finding the Tigran Hamasyan interview every time you come to this site.  But I am.  Just so you know, I am writing other stuff when I'm not writing for this blog.  So check out that other stuff if you'd like (though it's not about jazz) and there will, I imagine, be more posts here soon.  Mazel, good things to come.

Tigran Hamasyan Interview

Tigran Hamasyan


A while back, on February 11, I sat down to interview Tigran Hamasyan before his show at L'Astral here in Montreal.  It was a short interview, and we seemed to talk more about the music he likes than his own music.  But he had some great insights about Armenian and Turkish and Swedish and Arabic folk music.  He loves folk music, and he made me want to love it more.
