ABOUT
Inheritors of an oral tradition, the master musicans of the Goussan Ensemble tells us

as universal story dating back to the Middle Ages. The dialogue of their traditional instruments

carry us away on an imaginary jounrye towards the magnificent landscapes of Armenia, dominated

by the proud Mount Ararat. The musicians make us discover the repertoire of the Achoughs, troubadours

at the court as well as the one of the Goussans, consisting of the popular poetry.

The repertoire, rich and refined, is given value by the authenticity of the interpretation wich is gained thanks

to ancient instruments such as the kamancha, the duduk, the tar and the dap.

We hear desire and joy, some philosophical thoughts as well as satires on the socity, touching

cries from the exile or praising of the beloved homeland and its moutains.

The magic of a country, the nostalgia of a past, sometimes too much bear.
