The area known as Western Armenia has proven to be a particularly fertile ground for folk song and dance. This region is the subject of much nostalgic and patriotic song. The music of the ashugh, the wandering poet/minstrels of Armenia - all these treasures of Armenian music you can find in Ara Mkoyan's art.
Ara Mkoyan's "Karot Ko Dzaynin" ("Missing Your Voice") is a nice collection of Armenian folk songs and pieces of Armenian medieval spiritual music. Ara Mkoyan's duduk will make your mind saunter down the past of our nation.
