About Us

Armenian Public Radio shares their love for Armenian music as a celebratory and engaging experience with all who hear their innovative interpretations of these cultural standards. Inspired by troubadours and balladiers alike, Armenian Public Radio brings a new musical perspective to songs that have stood the test of time within the Armenian heritage.

Members of Armenian Public Radio—Saro K. (voice/guitar), Ryan D. (lead guitar) and Mher A. (arpeggio guitar/percussion)—all grew up listening to music that is sentimental not only to the older generation of Armenians, but also the community as a whole. Living in a musically vibrant Diaspora, the trio decided to revive these centuries-old folk songs and make it their mission to introduce their interpretation to the community.

Armenian Public Radio breathes new life into these traditional songs by weaving a blend of blues and American folk lead riffs with Anatolian rhythms and silver vocal lines. Melding musical styles—influenced by the Beatles, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains and Simon & Garfunkel, to name a few—with the simplicity of three acoustic guitars, the folk trio polish away the grit from these village songs and reinterpret them with modern sensibilities. Their innovative and enthusiastic style makes these songs accessible to both young and old Armenian generations, as well as those outside of the Armenian community.
