Award-winning world music star–Gor Mkhitarian will perform two concerts marking the release of his new album ?Episode.’
"Both concerts will showcase songs from Episode; the first at Glendale’s Metro Lending Terrace–Under The Stars and Twenty Stories High–on October 9–the second–at San Franciso’s Condor Club on October 16.
"The popular alternative rock star is a trail blazer in the emerging post-Soviet music scene. "Yeraz," his first solo CD released in 2002–fused the unique sounds and lyrics of ancient Armenian folk music with modern rock sounds. The innovative combination quickly garnered global attention–winning him acclaim from all over the world as well as accolades such as "best alternative rock singer" and "best world music album."
The concerts will feature Gor Mkhitarian–vocal/guitar; Ara Dabanjian on accordion; Jirair Habeshian on drums; and Vahe Terterian on bass.
"We can’t wait to introduce Gor’s music to San Francisco," says Mosaix publisher–Tamar Kevonian–whose magazine will host the San Francisco party celebrating Gor’s new CD.
"The magazine likes to support artists and musicians who reflect our core beliefs that we have a vibrant–colorful culture–emerging through the art of a new generation of Armenia’s–and re-defining what we think of as Armenian culture in a modern context."
