Take Three: Armenian Folk Music in Two Acts featuring Armenian Public Radio and Zulal Armenian Public Radio and Zulal on stage together for the first time don't miss this rare and amazing show.

Armenian Public Radio breathes new life into these traditional songs by weaving a blend of blues and American folk lead riffs with Anatolian rhythms and silver vocal lines. Melding musical styles influenced by the Beatles,Pearl Jam,Alice in Chains and Simon & Garfunkel,to name a few. With the simplicity of three acoustic guitars,the trio reinterprets them with modern sensibilities. Their innovative and enthusiastic style makes these songs accessible to both young and old Armenian generations Zulal,the a cappella trio,takes Armenia's village folk melodies and weaves intricate arrangements that pay tribute to the rural roots of the music while introducing a sophisticated lyricism and energy.

The trio celebrates the trials and joys of old Armenian village life: Budding romances in elevated gardens,the disappointments of hapless suitors,secret messages placed upon the western winds,the moonlit faces of shepherd boys and their brides...
These are the searing impressions of the past that come to life in Zulal's arrangements,reminders of a simpler past,tokens of comfort in the complex,modern world. Both acts will bring life to music that is sentimental not only to the older generation of Armenians but also the community as a whole. Don't miss out! For tickets visit

So *arranging* comes into play and is often the main reason a song sounds the way it does, as opposed to how it was written...meaning that you can take almost anything and by arranging it properly make it fit nearly any genre-
