Zulal trio to perform Armenian folk songs in Massachusetts

PanARMENIAN.Net - Zulal, an a cappella vocal trio performing Armenian folk music will present their "Zulal, A Folk Journey" program at Holy Trinity Armenian Apostolic Church, Worcester, Massachusetts on Saturday, March 29, according to Worcester Telegram.

Zulal's singers — Teni Apelian, Yeraz Markarian and Anaïs Tekerian — have been performing together since 2002. "There's so much in this genre. We're yet to extinguish our sources," Apelian said.

The performance will include Armenian folk songs from different regions, both historic and present-day.

Similarly, the music is "very ancient and still very contemporary," said Apelian, who grew up in Worcester.

The songs can be light, while with pieces based on work you can almost "hear the spinning wheels," she said. Also, however, "Armenian culture in general has a heavy melancholic line, which you hear a lot in the music," Apelian said.
