Homegrown: Ara & Onnik Dinkjian & Friends
Music Event Hosted by Library Of Congress
Onnik Dinkjian, at 88 years old, remains America’s most renowned Armenian folk and liturgical singer. He has preserved Armenian folk songs from the villages of Anatolia in eastern Turkey, especially in the unique dialect from his ancestral city of Diyarbekir, known as Dikranagerd to the Armenians. Dinkjian is among the last few hundred people who speak this endangered dialect. For this concert, Onnik will be joined by an ensemble of instrumentalists that includes his son Ara, a highly accomplished oud player.
