I’ve been a fan of Gasparyan for some time. Don’t think I’ve heard this tune before (at least not this arrangement) – I’ll have to go diggin through my collection. Thanks for sharing.
I love this album. Have you heard Sari Galin? I think that song and the link you posted (Birds) are my favourites from the album. I love both Hossein Alizadeh and Djivan Gasparyan.
