Music Of Armenia - Volumes 1 - 7
Label: CELESTIAL HARMONIES
If you're interested in the traditional music world of Armenia, why pick out just one or two discs? I'd recommend getting the entire box set. All the discs have great music. Each volume covers a different musical territory. It would be a nice addition to any music library. My only disappointment was that there wasn't a disc or two containing music of the Bosa, or Lom people of Armenia, the Gypsies. But then, that's probably another project, since this box set covers the folk and sacred music styles of the ethnic Eastern Armenians. The liner notes are almost as interesting as the music itself. It must have been quite an adventure going into those ancient and war-torn areas to capture this music.
