va - Գարուն: Garuna (Spring) [Tristes Humanistes Mixtape]


New seasonal (rather out of season actually) mixtape with more minor scales, falling leafs, broken hearts - all the musical beauty in ONE tape.
Sorry for the cover, it is not my best, but I reckon it looks ok once folded up and placed in a tape case.
Now I'm off to Berlin for a while, to see my friend Claire and for a bit of urban debauchery - if you want to know.


Tracklist:
A
1. Komitas Vardapet «Garuna»
2. Bessie Banks «Go Now»
3. Phongsi Woranut «Phit Wang Yang Khoi»
4. T.P. Orchestre Poly-Rythmo «Ako N'Venan Niwa»

11. J. Baczkowskiego Orkiestra «Oberek Pulawiak»
12. Reet Hendrikson «Haanja miis»

15. Daniel Johnston «Surely you don’t work at night»
16. West Coast Art Experimental Band «I Won't Hurt You»

The first version of Garuna (track 1) is sung by Komitas' star pupil, Armenak Shahmuradian, with Komitas himself accompanying on piano (thank ya øשl). The second version (track 19) was performed by Anna Parsamyan in my local church.
