Return to roots at 40: Hamshen Armenian musician releases new album
Hamshen Armenian rock musician Yasar Kurt was 40, when he discovered his Armenian roots. The musician has now released a new album titled “Hamshen Highlands,” Akunq.net reports.
The album, released after a break of 5 years, reflects the musician’s Armenian roots and includes Black Sea melodies.
Speaking to Agos, the singer said he regrets no song in Hamshen Armenian dialect has been included in the album. “It’s a pity that the younger generation does not speak Armenian. Even those who know the Hamshen Armenian dialect, rarely use it,” he said.
Yasar Kurt hopes to release a new album in Armenian or Hamshen Armenian in cooperation with the “Vova” group and Aysenur Kolivarin the near future.
