After having won the Grand Prix Jazz GM at the Montreal International Jazz Festival, as well as first prize in the Propulsion Jazz competition at Montreal’s Planète Jazz radio, Arden Arapyan launched his album “Vahak” right here at l’Astral, in 2011. That same year, he achieved great success in France, where he performed his European debut, in Paris. As always, his music is imbued with an eclectic palette of influences, including Armenian, Afro-Cuban and Middle-Eastern music, as well as American jazz and the European greats of classical music. Arden Arapyan reemerges with a new programme, including some new compositions and arrangements, as well as some pieces from his album “Vahak”. As always, he will be accompanied by his stellar ensemble, featuring world-class musicians originating from backgrounds as diverse as the music itself. This show will be studded with some very special guest performers! Stay tuned for more details!
