Director Tatiana Daniliyants

Production year 2016

Length 73min.

Country Russia/Armenia


Between East and West, between bloody wars and blossoming gardens, between nostalgic music of duduk and modernistic jazz, there lies one of the oldest cities in the world: its name is Yerevan. Like the others, Yerevan has passed through the tests  of the 20th century and lives according to its own music and rhythm. Six musicians-- among them multiple Grammy Award Laureate Arto Tuncboyacijan and Jivan Gasparyan, the man who celebrated the ''voice'' of  duduk throughout the world-- genii loci of Yerevan talk and sing  about their city,  revealing its  pain and  its beauty.
