Naghash Ensemble: World Music From Armenian Medieval Poems

When American-Armenian musician John Hodyan was in Armenia for the first time, he accidentally heard the voice of singer Hasmik Baghdasaryan. She was rehearsing in the Garni temple. That connection led to the creation of the Naghash Ensemble in 2012. While trying to find a text that would match Hasmik’s voice, Hodyan discovered the medieval Armenian poet Mkrtich Naghash.
