“Sari Aghjik” is an Armenian Folk Song” initiative is aimed at identifying and spreading the Armenian roots of the song among the local youth. The roots were partially forgotten after the Armenian Genocide in 1915. First of all, the initiative places great importance on the Armenian cultural heritage in the context of protecting it and preventing the foreign ambitions towards the song.
This beautiful song, of course, is the achievement of the whole region; it is sung in Turkish, Kurdish, Persian, Arabic, Georgian, and other languages in different countries. However, it is crucial to remember the Armenian roots and the original Armenian text of the song. The initiators of the project are political scientist, specialist on Azerbaijani studies Anzhela Elibegova and blogger Ani Margaryan. The initiative was supported and organized by the students of Information and Public Communication scientific center of Yerevan State Linguistic University after V. Brusov. A website was specially designed for the project. Moreover, the official Facebook page is also currently available. SARI GELIN IS AN ARMENIAN FOLK SONG-ՍԱՐԻ ԱՂՋԻԿԸ ՀԱՅԿԱԿԱՆ ԵՐԳ Է.
The initiative has started and continues to be based on volunteer principles; it is the official disposition of the organizers. Photoshoots, flashmobs, song recordings by Armenian singers, and a number of other events are held in the framework of the project.
We are greatly thankful to all those, who responded to the call and took part in the project. Also, we encourage all interested entities to take part in our events. We are open to cooperation and accept the support of everyone.
