The U.S. debut album by legendary Armenian musician Arto Tuncboyaci yan. Arto sings, accompanying himself on the traditional 6-string sazabo, solos on the traditional double-reed duduk, and plays percussion. He has arranged 11 original compositions for a dynamic world music experience with his ensemble of ten players.
Known most widely for his percussion work with Joe Zawinul, Al DiMeola, Chet Bak er and Oregon, Arto puts forth here for the first time the complete spectrum of his multi-faceted abilities.
"He's a remarkable composer, a magnificent percussionist, and his voice resonates with the soul of humanity." -- Paul Winter
