Bucharest Daily News, Romania Jan 23 2006
Armenian accordion player David Yengiabryan will tour Romania between January 26 and 30 as a guest of Romanian jazz pianist of Armenian origin, Harry Tavitian. The two will perform concerts in Bucharest, Constanta and Cluj.
"I met David in 2005 in Hungary and I liked him very much. He is a very talented young man whose music is a mixture of Armenian folklore and Astor Piazzola. He is very good with improvisations and also has a talent for communication. We have already had two concerts together, before the Hungarian public which received our music with enthusiasm," Tavitian says about his guest, adding that he is very glad to have organized the tour for jazz lovers in Romania.
Yengibaryan was born in 1976 in Yerevan but has been living in Budapest for the past 10 years, where he has become one of the best know accordion players in the city. He set up his own band in 1999 and has released two albums, "Tango Passion" and "Pandoukht" - the Armenian word for "exiled." Yengibayran has also made film and theater music and played in several theater shows. He has performed so far in Paris, London, Amsterdam, Vienna and Edinburgh.
