As an excellent way to end International Children’s Day, Arto Tuncboyajian’s Armenian Navy Band opened a free concert at The Cascade in Yerevan. The group came second in the Europe Category for this year’s BBC Radio 3 World Music Awards, but came first in the Audience Award Category.

  1. Although I like the Armenian Navy Band as they have a great sound and are clearly very talented, I cannot stand Arto Tuncboyajian’s foolish antics on stage and his mumbo-jumbo wailing. He has no voice and simply cannot sing. After five minutes of his ranting my wife and I got bored and walked away. He should stick to playing percussion, and hire a singer if he wants to add vocals to his music.
