Song and dance

Song and dance are inseparable parts of the characteristic culture of the Armenians in any locality. It is our aim, under this heading, to present, in the greatest possible numbers, the various songs (dance, ceremonial, children’s, life, lullaby, humorous etc) in the various languages used in the given locality (Armenian, Turkish, Kurdish etc) with their written notation and sound recordings. The movements used in local dances will be described; whenever it is possible, the dances will be shown on film.
