Anna Garano, classical and Flamenco guitarist from Trieste, Italy, has arranged a repertoire of Armenian songs for voice and guitar. Here in New York at Alwan she is joined by Anaïs Alexandra Tekerian, one third of the acclaimed Armenian a cappella trio Zulal, in this lyrical, poignant fusion of Flamenco and vocals of the Old World.

In light of the upcoming 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, Anna and Anaïs will present a selection of Armenian songs of love and idealization, of loss and despair, of questioning and hope.

Tickets: $20 General | $15 for Students, Seniors, Members

Anna Garano received a degree in classical guitar from the Conservatorio Tartini of Trieste (Italy), then acquired a "Diploma di Laurea" in Music History (University of Trieste) specializing in contemporary music, and later on studied Indian and Arabic music at the International Institute of Comparative Music of Venezia. She later traveled to Andalusia to study flamenco guitar with such masters as Paco Serrano, Manolo Franco, and Manolo Sanlucar, and studied, most notably, with Paco Peña at the Rotterdam Conservatory where she also played with world music ensembles. Presently she composes and performs her own music as well as arrangements of traditional music, as a soloist and with musicians of varied origins, in Italy and around the world.

Anaïs Alexandra Tekerian
is one of the co-founders of Zulal, an Armenian a cappella trio. Zulal has been featured many times on WNYC’s New Sounds and has toured the United States and Canada, performing in such venues as Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, Symphony Space, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and the Getty Museum, along with performances for Cirque du Soleil and The Silk Road Project. An actress as well, Tekerian has performed in theater and film around New York. Her original piece, Tangled Yarn, created with artist Kevork Mourad and featuring a soundtrack by Zulal, premiered at the New York International Fringe Festival and was performed on both coasts. A native of San Francisco, where she attended the Lycée Français Lapérouse, she earned her degree in Theater Studies from Yale University. She now resides in New York City.


Alwan's music program is made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in Partnership with the City Council.
