ZULAL TRIO TO PERFORM ARMENIAN FOLK SONGS IN MASSACHUSETTS
March 27, 2014 – 14:01 AMT
PanARMENIAN.Net – Zulal, an a cappella vocal trio performing Armenian
folk music will present their “Zulal, A Folk Journey” program at
Holy Trinity Armenian Apostolic Church, Worcester, Massachusetts on
Saturday, March 29, according to Worcester Telegram.
Zulal’s singers — Teni Apelian, Yeraz Markarian and Anaïs Tekerian —
have been performing together since 2002. “There’s so much in this
genre. We’re yet to extinguish our sources,” Apelian said.
The performance will include Armenian folk songs from different
regions, both historic and present-day.
Similarly, the music is “very ancient and still very contemporary,”
said Apelian, who grew up in Worcester.
The songs can be light, while with pieces based on work you can almost
“hear the spinning wheels,” she said. Also, however, “Armenian culture
in general has a heavy melancholic line, which you hear a lot in the
music,” Apelian said.
