Tigran Hamasyan (Armenian: Տիգրան Համասյան; born July 17, 1987) is an Armenianjazz pianist. He plays mostly original compositions, which are strongly influenced by the Armenian folk tradition, often using its scales and modalities. In addition to Tigran's folk influence, he is influenced by American jazz traditions and to some extent, as on his album Red Hail, by progressive rock.[1] His solo album A Fable is most strongly influenced by Armenian folk music. Even on his most overt jazz compositions and renditions of well-known jazz pieces, his improvisations often contain embellishments based on scales from Middle Eastern/South Western Asian traditions.[2]

Early life[edit]

Hamasyan was born in Gyumri, Armenia.[3] His ancestors were from the Kars region.[4] His father was a jeweler and his mother designed clothes.[5] At the age of three he began to play melodies on his family's piano, and he went to a music school from the age of six.[5] As a young child, he dreamed of being a thrash metal guitarist.[5]Mimio software download mac.

He studied jazz from the age of nine, then tried to incorporate local folk melodies into jazz-form improvisations when in his teens.[5] At this stage, Hamasyan was influenced by Armenian composers Arno Babajanian and Avet Terterian.[5] Hamasyan, together with his parents and sister, moved to Yerevan when he was around 10,[6] and then to California when he was 16. He currently resides in Yerevan, Armenia.[7]


Hamasyan recorded his first album, World Passion, at the age of 18.[5] He spent a lot of 2013 in Armenia, which helped develop his interest in its folk music.[5] He was the leader of the 'Aratta Rebirth', with which he performed Red Hail.[8]

Emerging keyboardist Tigran Hamasyan is truly a virtuoso performer who minces no musical words, and never holds back on his immense talent. Aratta Rebirth is his second release as a leader, in this case with the group dubbed Red Hail, embracing his Middle Eastern heritage, playing modern jazz based on folk tunes that stretch far beyond their origins. With vocalist Areni Agbabian, Hamasyan somehow conjures up whirling dervish motifs that stagger the imagination while also retaining a soulful quality that suggests seductive late-night scenarios in smoke-filled rooms laced with immediate sexual pleasure references. But it's only marginally about the act of intertwining, and more about the catalyst and spark that start fires burning, for Hamasyan's acoustic and electric piano playing is a long fuse that eventually incites the explosive music. Saxophonist Ben Wendel and drummer Nate Wood are kindling for the roaring flames, with bassist Sam Minale chopping up underlying lines that keep the excited heat stoked and nourished. There's some stunning music here, starting with the bold inventions of the opening track, 'Shogher Jan,' an adapted Armenian folk song turned into a fiery discourse between Hamasyan's impressively fast and spontaneous spiky, complex piano lines and the sidled voice of Agbabian stewed in many mixed meters. The title track is a rock-hard, edgy fusion, loud and ultra-kinetic; 'Falling' is similar in beat with some insane Arabic or East Indian scatting and a modal jazz segment; while 'The Awakening of Mher' is also rocked out via Hamasyan's Fender Rhodes, the electric guitar of Charles Altura, and Wendel's tenor sax. Six consecutive tracks include Wendel on soprano sax and bassoon, including the serene 'Love Song,' the piercing 'Sibylla' (which is the basis for the following piece, 'Corrupt'), and the two-part 'Serpentine' and 'Moneypulated' (starting as a brash electronica-based minimalist directive and merging into Hamasyan's pleasant, echoed Rhodes sans bass). The most innately busy piece is 'The Glass-Hearted Queen,' soulful and busy within a kinetic form with Agbabian's wordless vocals, all wrapped in a 9/8 rhythm. Tigran Hamasyan is as impressive as any relatively new piano voice like Eldar Djangirov, Vijay Iyer, or Taylor Eigsti, playing a lot of notes and exhaustive in his concept. This recording, with its world and ethnic fusion approach, sets him apart from the rest, and like similar artists Rami Khalife and Fahir Atakoglu, establishes new standards, raising the bar very high for new music, while Hamasyan plays in a league of his own. ~ Michael G.
