Armenian musicians at the “Islands of Peace”
Thirteen young musicians from Armenia, Azerbaijan and the Aland Islands will spend a week together.
They met on August 6 (International Day of the Victims of Hiroshima) at the Aland Islands to play music and exchange experience for a week.
The musicians will be participating in courses, discussions, will perform drills and will give an experimental concert entitled “Voices of Peace” at the Mariehamn Square on August 10.
The open-air concert will be organized on the sidelines of the program marking the anniversary of the Institute of Peace of the Aland Islands and aimed at disseminating and establishing peace.
The musicians’ list includes performances of jazz, folk and world music. Most of them are famous and professional musicians in their respective countries, including pianists, as well as expert musicians playing the national music instruments of the South Caucasus region (tar, udi, saz) and singers.
