Founded by the violonist David Haroutunian, the band "Toumanian Mek" is carrying the spirit of Armenian chamber music, and more specifically the repertoire of the string quartet, very little known in the Western World. Created with several remarkable musicians from the "Opéra de Paris", the Philharmonic Ochestra of Radio-France and other prestigious Parisian formations, they have concocted their first set by taking the influences of folk music from Armenia and adding to it the new arrangements of very famous Khatchatourian pieces. To vary from the string quartet, the band will very often invite other artists coming from all horizons on stage to spice up their show.
