A music video by Hrachya Avanesyan, a Belgium-based Armenian musician, has gained an increasing popularity on YouTube.
A sound track for a criminal film by Quentin Tarantino, it has had 450,000 views since being posted on the video hosting website on September 15.
Avanesyan has released the video as a member of the Trilogy band.
The musician's name caught the public ear last year after he asked the Armenian authorities to solve his army conscription issue to enable him to represent Armenia at the International Tchaykovsky Competition in .
A competition panel, considered to be one of the most difficult ones, selected Avanesyan along with 20 other musicians from among 300 performers.
Avanesyan, 26, was in the wanted list for not serving in the military and travelling abroad. He didn't have a right to enter Russia which was the hosting the competition. But the Armenian authorities met the musician half-way, granting him deferment. Nonetheless he didn't manage to participate the competition.
