 Richard A. Hagopian - Best of Armenian Folk Music   Richard A. Hagopian - Best of Armenian Folk Music 
Armenian scholars and priests wrote about instruments and music as early as 200 BC yet the descriptions of Armenian Music are ambiguous, mainly because of political and social changes which permeate Armenian history.
