Zulal (sponser by Armenian Relief Society)

Zulal Armenian A Cappella Folk Trio

In Armenian, Zulal means “clear water.” Zulal, the a cappella trio, takes Armenia’s village folk melodies and weaves intricate arrangements that pay tribute to the rural roots of the music while introducing a sophisticated lyricism and energy. Zulal’s singers, Teni Apelian, Yeraz Markarian and Anaïs Tekerian have been singing together since 2002. The trio has performed in such esteemed venues as the Getty Museum, Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall, The Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage and New York's Symphony Space, along with performances for Cirque du Soleil and the Silk Road Project. Zulal has scored the film Stone Touch Time and has two critically acclaimed albums to its credit. The trio celebrates the trials and joys of old Armenian village life: Budding romances in elevated gardens, the disappointments of hapless suitors, secret messages placed upon the western winds, the moonlit faces of shepherd boys and their brides... These are the searing impressions of the past that come to life in Zulal's arrangements, reminders of a simpler past, tokens of comfort in the complex, modern world.
