As today is Armenan Genocide Remembrance Day we have an Armenian song that is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide in 2015.
Duetro Kids are a children's choir from Armenia. They are based around young performers from Duetro Studio in Yeravan and includes Lidushik and Yana Hovhannisyan amongst many more talented young artists.
Srbir Arcunqnerd [Wipe Your Tears] was originally released on YouTube in 2015 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide in 2015. This song uses the vocal talents of Yana Hovhannisyan, Arshak Tamrazyan, Lidushik, Avetis. Karen Ughuryan, and Venera Aleksanyan. It is a beautiful song that can still send a chill down your spine even if you can’t understand the words. The video tells the story of a young girl and her grandmother remembering the Armenian Genocide through looking at old photographs that were taken during Genocide times, ending with the touching scene of the young girl, played by Venera, tucking her grandmother in and blowing out the candle.
You can follow Duetro Kids on Facebook, on Instagram, and on the Duetro Studio YouTube channel. You can buy their music on iTunes.
