Gor Mkhitarian - Armenian Folk

Gor Mkhitarian is the lead guitarist of the popular Armenian band "Lav Eli". He has in 2001 begun with a solo carrer and has since then released 3 albums. I will cite to describe his music: "In his music, Mkhitarian makes a case for writing the next chapter in Armenia's rich musical history by updating the sound and feel of the classic Armenian folk song. But what has made Mkhitarian a favorite in Armenia is his uncanny ability to combine unique songwriting ability with stunning modern arrangements of Armenian folk music."
Check out his web site and cdbaby for samples, links to samples respectively.
There's also English language tracks on the albums ;)

Wherever (it's in Armenian despite the English title)
