The elves of the Armenians
I’m listening to “tou heratsar” kez moranal che lini….He sang this and other “Kloukh kordzots” songs for him and for us,since each of us have gone through black days such as nowadays.He took simple unknown songs and turned them into a glorious success full of emotions, nostalgia and. e regrets had this God given beautiful tenor voice which he embellished with so many subtle grace notes. All one has to do is listen again to “El kez chem siroum” to confirm what I/m trying to transfer. My biggest consolation is that I told him this during any of our conversations. I’m glad I did, I wanted him to know that he was special and extraordinary.. No one even can come even closer to him. because its not only the sweat voice, he also had powerful lungs for long breath syllables sometimes lasting 18 seconds (see “Kna kna” ),in addition to a perfect diction and choice of lyrics..
