Based in Yerevan, Armenia and led by Armenian-American composer John Hodian, Naghash Ensemble combines the earthy spirituality of Armenian folk song, new classical music, and contemporary post-minimalism with the energy of rock and jazz. Three brilliant female vocalists and some of Armenia’s finest instrumentalists on duduk, oud, dhol, and piano play captivating new music based on sacred texts by the medieval Armenian mystic poet and priest, Mkrtich Naghash. They make their NYC debut at Carnegie Hall’s Zankel Hall on 3/11/23
