The Naghash Ensemble

Adapting poems on exile written in the 15th century by the Armenian priest Mgrdtich Nagash, John Hodian is creating links between ancient and modern classical music, classical singing, traditional Armenian music and contemporary jazz and classical. The formation sees a piano, a trio of classical singers and traditional instruments, creating a spiritual ensemble which suppresses time and space. It results in a sound of sacred beauty that incites a mixture of joy and ecstasy.
