Tigran Hamasyan is twenty-eight years old. He grew up in Gyumri, the former Alexandropol, also the birth-place of Gurdjieff. Gurdjieff however grew up in Kars, then part of Russia with a multi-ethnic and multi-lingual population of Armenians, Russians, Caucasus Greeks, Caucasus Germans, Turks, Kurds and Estonians. Kars is now situated at the Turkish side of the still closed Armenian Turkish border.

Here is a VIDEO clip of the second part of the piece „Kars (Wounds Of The Century“ from Hamasyan’s last album, based on the Armenian folk melody „Yaman Yar“.
