Bedros Alahaidoyan Coll. | Sassoun songs

This page presents songs and dance music collected and recorded by musicologist Bedros Alahaidoyan. Beginning in the 1980s, Mr. Alahaidoyan traveled to cities and towns populated by Armenians throughout the Diaspora, in search for Genocide survivors from whom he collected rare songs and anecdotes of their native cities and villages. Editing of this page, as well as music engraving and digitization, provided by Dzovig Markarian, DMA. Translation: Simon Beugekian.

Local Music and Folk Songs

In 1986, Papken Sassouni (1929-2017), a native of Sassoun, met with musicologist Bedros Alahaidoyan, who also happened to be his relative, in Los Angeles. During this meeting, Sassouni gave Alahaidoyan an audio tape, which had been recorded on October 12, 1979, in Talin (Armenia). The contents of this tape are presented here in their entirety. The recording features a small group of natives of Sassoun who gathered in a house and took turns singing the traditional, folk, and patriotic/fedayi songs of their native lands – Sassoun, Talin, and Dalvorig.

Some of the recorded songs feature repeated verses. In other cases, the singers omitted some of the lyrics. Sometimes they also added their own jokes to the songs. At the beginning of the cassette, the name of only one singer is announced and that is Samuel Torosian.

The listeners will notice that in some of the songs, the singers, in order to further entertain their audiences, repeat parts of a song that are not necessarily refrains; or, when they forgot the lyrics, they ingeniously replace them with their own extemporaneous inventions (especially in the fedayi songs). In such cases, we generally chose to provide the standard lyrics that have appeared in published song books. However, in some cases, we transcribed the songs as sung, especially when the substitutions allowed the singers to avoid mentioning specific political parties, and instead use a lexicon that gives the lyrics a more universal Armenian flavor. These changes do not alter or distort the melody of the songs in any way.

These performances once again remind us that the phenomenon that we call a “song,” once born, travels freely and constantly evolves as it encounters new people and their localities.
