Chaque note est une larme de joie ou de tristesse
en vous écoutant, je revois mes parents venus d'Erzeroum, et j'entend leur voix

" I can't tell you how I feel
My heart is like a wheel
Let me roll it
Let me roll it to you"
The joy I feel in that you are still creating beautiful music can not simply be expressed.
My love to you all. Always in my thoughts.

Ara, your newest work is simply masterful. You are a national treasure; one who shows how one can honor and enrich the old with the new without trading off. May you continue to receive the exposure, opportunities, and acknowledgment you richly deserve.

The new cd is incredible!
I just wish that some of the material that you have released outside of America was more readily available here.

Hello Ara,
I'm an Israeli oud player, and a great fan of your's, and am proud to have been to both your concerts in The Jerusalem oud festival, this year with your father, and last year. They were both excellent and were the crown jewel of the festival.
Thank you,
Ivri, Israel

I am a Jordanian American and I play the oud also. You are one fine musician. But I would like to ask you, when you play in Jerusalem, how do the Palestinian crowd receive your music? It would be great if you could dedicate a song or music to the Palestinans who are suffering under Zionist occupation.

ello Ara,
congratulations on your website and new cd, "An Armenian in America": it features, among other things, fantastic live versions of "Anna Tol' Ya", "The Invisible Lover", "The Long Goodbye" & "Offering" and an excellent virtuosity on oud. I heard Night Ark on stage five years ago in Rome (La Palma), during an European tour; after 1st set we talked about your emotional musical world and then you signed my own "In Wonderland" cd ... do you remember? Thank you Ara and all the best.

Ara, You are my inspiration since I heard you for the first time. Your music is the music I love the most - yes, within the entire music world - yours is the one I listen to thousands of times and it is always fresh, innocent, spiritual and so expressive. Thank you, Ara. God bless you! See you in Jerusalem 11/11/2006. Noam, Israel.
