MUSIC: Armenian Stories The Montreux Jazz Label TCB 03132, 2008 (

"Hekiat" is the name of a band which invites four of Switzerland’s jazz familiar faces to feature a singer arriving from abroad, bringing with her the roots of her homeland Armenia. The generosity of this traditional music makes the arrangements and compositions of the young pianist burst a new taste of inspirational armeno-jazz harmonies and rythms played delicately and abundantly by each band member. It is clear that the musical and cultural colors of this band varies from europe to middle east, but the musicians embrace this music and perform it as their own, letting their creativity and dedication unite them on stage as one unique sound.
