Tigran Hamasyan: piano.
Jazz is the place where we come together, an open and inclusive space. The strength of this global music lies also in its ability to accommodate different cultures. Being yourself is not just allowed, it’s required. Since the 1980s, a trend has developed in Europe, with musicians experiencing the convergence of the jazz tradition with that of popular and formal music, of rock and pop. The result is a highly personal language, and the young pianist, Tigran Hamasyan, is one of the most convincing examples of this. Echoes of his Armenian identity emerge within a luxuriant and virtuoso style that often looks to the enchanting spirituality of the melodies of the sacred and secular music of his land.
