Armenian Echoes Part One
______________
part of the mini-series on the Music of Armenia.
So much of a people's identity stems from the songs they sing, the music they play, and the spirit of their dance.

Music is the very essence of the cultural identity of a people.

In this film Hagop Goudsouzian continues his 7-month journey through Armenia in pursuit of his dream, the soul of Armenian Music.

In the mini-series Armenian Echoes we touch that soul from ancient spiritual songs, through rural and urban dancers to the unsung musicians from isolated villages.

In his first film on the music of Armenia, Armenian Minstrels, Hagop Goudsouzian spends a month filming renowned minstrels, featuring the Sayat-Nova Minstrel Song Ensemble.

Now, in Armenian Echoes he continues his quest to capture and feel the sounds of Armenia.

Part One features Onik Galstyan, kamancha player in the famous Aram Merangulyan Folk Instruments Ensemble, Arthur Shahnazarian, the eminent musicologist, as he revives ancient spiritual songs written in Khaz performed by the National Chamber Choir of Armenia, the famed Sasun Dance Troupe of Ashnak, Edik Safaryan, celebrated Minstrel from the remote village of Aygedzor and the Surb Tiramayr Choir from Vanadzor.

Hagop Goudsouzian weaves a beautiful series showcasing a unique glimpse of Armenian life through its music, the very essence of cultural identity.


Hagop Goudsouzian is the producer and director of over 250 mainstream Television programs, 10 Armenian films and three shorts.
Apricot Armenian Gold (with Subtitles),  Apricot Armenian Gold (with English Voices),  Armenian Minstrels,  Armenian Echoes (three part mini-series),  Armenian Exile (also narrated).

Hagop also directed and narrated the feature length documentary My Son Shall Be Armenian and Mon fils sera arménien produced by
the National Film Board of Canada.

He also produced and directed several shorts, A Taste of Armenia, on the famous Goom's Market of Yerevan, free on some DVDs and Blu-rays.

In 2016 Goudsouzian released UPROOTED (also narrated), Part three of his "Armenian Trilogy."

Goudsouzian is now developing a feature length documentary. To sponsor Hagop's new projects, use contact  or sponsor links.
