Ara Malikyan, one of the world's best violinists, dedicates his Yerevan concert to the 155th anniversary of Komitas. Before the concert, the artist visited the Komitas Museum-Institute, toured the museum, got acquainted with the exhibits.

He admitted he thought he knew both Komitas' biography and music pretty well, but it turns out there's still a lot to learn.

According to him, although Komitas has traveled a lot, his music is very Armenian and folk.

On the stage with Malikyan there will be musicians with whom the violinist has traveled a long way and performed on prestigious stages of the world.

They are pianist Ivan "Melon" Lewis, double bassist Ivan Ruiz Machado, drummer Georvis Pico Milan, guitarist Diane Abad.
