A new double LP that celebrates the past, present and future of Armenian music has been released.
It comes via LA's Critique label and acts as "a cultural compilation as much as it is an indigenous tool for meditation, live mixing and everything in between."
Titled 'YERAZ' the 10-track digital and double vinyl release embodies "the transcendent creative spirit of Armenian culture" and features music from Bei Ru, Armen Ra and Serjo, among others. 100 per cent of profits from sales of the album will go to Kooyrigs, a non-profit that provides transparent aid to the Armenian homeland.
Creative direction for the album comes from Karine Eurdekian and Club Chai's Lara Sarkissian, who also contributes a track. Cover artwork comes from Natalee Miller.
