CONCERT: LENA CHAMAMYAN / لينا شماميان
Like many of her fellow nationals, the Syrian-Armenian pop singer Lena
Chamamyan has been living in Paris for several years, where she mainly
works with European musicians. They also helped with recordings on her
latest album „Ghazal El-Banat (Cotton Candy)“. This 12-track record
contains tracks that are often dedicated to women and children. At the
same time, they tell the story of a woman who moved to Europe – and had
to start her life and career all over again.
Lena Chamamyan combines Arabic and Armenian music with contemporary styles and sings in five different languages. Lena Chamamyan’s – by any standards – transnational music fusion, has made her a pioneering political figure.
