Areni Agbabian, Nicolas Stocker - Bloom (CD ALBUM (1 DISC))

Improvising vocalist, folk singer, storyteller, pianist: on her ECM debut AreniAgbabianfocuses the range of her skills in music that casts a quiet spell. A sparse music in which voice, piano and the subtle percussion of Nicolas Stocker (last heard on ECM with Nik Bärtsch'sMobile ensemble), continually shade into silence.

The California-born Agbabian, who came to international attention with the groups of Tigran Hamasyan, draws deeply upon her Armenian heritage, reinterpreting sacred hymns, a traditional tale, a folk melody transcribed by Komitas and more, and interspersing these elements among her own evocative compositions.Bloomwas recorded in Lugano in October 2016 and produced by Manfred Eicher.

Her voice has been described as "bell-toned" byTheGuardianand "lush" by theLos Angeles Times, the music she creates with it "intensely focused, moving toward some kind of hidden truth," according toThe New York Times.
