Editorial Reviews

"water takes the color of its recipient"
An Armenian Sage

This DVD contains a one-hour concert and the documentary "Trails to the Soul"

Located in the Caucasus region of Eurasia, Armenia has maintained a Christian tradition since the 4th century. During this long history, Armenia has been subjected to invasions, persecutions, deportations and the first genocide of the 20th century. It suffered through 70-years of Soviet dictatorship and declared its independence in 1991. Today, nearly half of Armenian's population live outside its borders.

Like the Achugh - the traveling Armenian Troubadours - this documentary follows the winding roads of Armenia to discover its landscape, its people and its music. The documentary features Yeghish Manoukian a brilliant and accomplished player of the doudouk, a double reed instrument popular with the people of Eastern Europe. Yeghish is accompanied by Agop Boyadjian, Mais Avoyan and Stepani Adgozian, creating a brilliant ensemble seeking the soul of Armenia through its still popular traditional music.
Directed by Marc Bissot and Didier Maertens

Also included on this disc is a Concert from Theatre de la Ville, Paris
In this brilliant performance Armenian Troubadours maintain the long tradition of the art of "Achugh", the singing of epic poetry by local traveling troubadours. These poets and musicians sing chronicles for the people, spreading news and cultivating poetry. In this concert you can hear why troubadour lyric poetry has remained alive and popular with the public.
Directed by Isabelle Soulard and Marc Bissot
