Lebanon-born Armenian pianist Hovig Nassanian reminds us of that tragic day on April 24

Taken from his 3rd solo piano 11-track album called Tributes, Hovig Nassanian sends us into an emotional and rather intimate experience loaded with deep memories called April 24.

Hovig Nassanian is a well-respected Lebanon-born Armenian indie pianist who lives in Cyprus with his wife and young son who has also started learning the piano.

April 24 is a solemn day for us Armenians. Every year, on this day, we commemorate the death of 1.5 million of our people during World War I – the Armenian Genocide at the hands of the Ottoman Turks. Many of our leading intellectuals, poets and musicians were killed on April 24, 1915. I first wrote this tune around 20 years ago, as part of a musical project to honor the memory of the genocide victims. The project did not materialize, but the tune has been buzzing in my head ever since…and now finally, I recorded it as a tribute to the sacrifice and suffering of my people.” ~ Hovig Nassanian

As one of the classiest acts around no matter the genre, Hovig Nassanian displays his unparalleled skillset in the best possible way with a quite sublime rendition. Mellow in nature and quite understandably restrained, at a mournful memory which will be seeped into many generations to come.

April 24 from the experienced Armenian indie pianist Hovig Nassanian is one of those hugely memorable tributes which still scar many hearts. Performed with deep intensity and bringing us a real message that so many might have forgotten, we find a moment to close our eyes and remember those who were lost rather tragically.

Lebanon-born EDM artist C:3 powers in with pulsating party anthem I Just Dance

Jumping to the beat and soaring rather wonderfully up into the skies of promise, C:3 is in top form and might rattle the bones of those who love a splendid night out with music to clear the mind with called I Just Dance.

C:3 is a Los Angeles-based Lebanon-born electronic music producer and DJ who makes those soul-awakening tracks to dance with all night long.

His love for music started at a young age where he would stay up late at night in his basement researching and teaching himself different music programs.” ~ C:3

Fusing in the vibrant sounds of tech-house, bass-house, Latin, and captivating Middle Eastern blends of goodness, C:3 has dropped a rather spectacular Spur-like sizzler on this special song to get sweaty with. Slamming down the pulse and setting the tempo with a rather enormously consequential experience, this is such a fantastic single to bounce merrily with.

I Just Dance from Lebanon-born music producer and DJ C:3 is a superbly lit soundtrack to bathe happily inside. Skyrocketing rather enormously with so many exhilarating flavours to munch into, this is a sure-fire mood flipper which is on the same level as a Shane Warne ripper. Hugely motivated and strong like its creator, we find a heart speeder to blossom inside rather dynamically.

Hear this fine single on Spotify. See more on IG.
