Kaza of Van - Locale

We’d like to present a new Houshamadyan animation film about the city of Van. The citadel of Van appears in the opening scene, followed by the neighborhood of Aykesdan. In the distance is Varaka Mountain. Gregory Kachperouni, a Vanetsi, performs the melodies that accompanies the film. He heard and learnt these tunes in his native Van. In 1986, Bedros Alahaidoyan recorded them in Boston. Concept, animation and edition: Olga Golikova and Silvina Der-Meguerditchian
Under this general heading you will find the presentation of the geography as well as population movements and history of the place you have selected.
