After an extensive tour of Dubai, Beirut, Damascus, New York and Los Angeles and many others, the Yerevan premier of “Gilgamesh” project took place at the Armenian Center for Contemporary Experimental Art (NPAK) on October 19th. The Armenian audience was given the opportunity to enjoy the unique combination of music and illustration thanks to the Armenian General Benevolent Union, in particular AGBU Central Board member Vasken Yacoubian. The “Gilgamesh” project is the result of cooperation between two Syrian artists: Kevork Mourad, an Armenian by origin (live illustrations) and Kinan Azmeh (clarinet). In the emotional and artistic environment of NPAK the audience followed the impressive live illustrations by Mourad to the sounds of Azmeh’s clarinet. “Gilgamesh” is the story of the King of Uruk in Babylonia (present day Iraq) and his counterpart Enkidu. The Sumerian-Babylonian “Gilgamesh” is the most ancient epic we have in writing today (2700 B.C.).
