Traditional music from the South Caucasus, Anatolia & Armenia.

AGA stands for Armenia, Georgia, Anatolia. In peaceful times, the people of the South Caucasus and Anatolia danced hand in hand; during wars and genocide they sang lamentations. On this album, the AGA Trio reinterprets melodies that have been passed down from generation to generation. The Trio hopes that this album will help revive the shared melodies that are the product of the interaction between the peoples of the South Caucasus and Anatolia, who have lived together for centuries.
