Jazz From Around the World: Armenia and Israel 

Pianist/composer Tigran Hamasyan “merges ancient Armenian sacred music with jazz piano” (The New York Times). “[He] likes to mix things up, whether it’s bebop, thrash metal or dubstep. But his heart is in the folk music of his native land, Armenia.” (The Guardian)  

Israeli pianist Guy Mintus, with a mixed heritage of Iraqi, Moroccan, and Polish Jews, is a “talented young musical emissary who expertly blends the folkloric sounds of his homeland with the improvising aesthetic of jazz” (Ottawa Citizen).
