Alternative Folk | Armenia
Goght is a genre-bending Armenian band formed in 2015 with the goal of breaking the rules when it comes to playing Armenian music. The band pairs the piano and cello with traditional Armenian instruments like the duduk, tar, parkapzuk (bagpipe), dhol, zurna, and more. Their music, a mix of original pieces and traditional Armenian songs, emits elements of jazz, rock, classical, and folk - often all at the same time - creating a truly eclectic repertoire.
