PanARMENIAN.Net - New anthem for Shushi will be premiered on May 8, author of the anthem music, San Francisco-based Armenian composer said, according to Karabakh Open.
Avetis Berberyan named Nushik Mikaelyan as the author of the lyrics.
In response to the question regarding the changes Nagorno Karabakh has undergone since the end of the war, the composer said, “Before we all had a more romantic image of Artsakh. However, today the fact that it makes our inalienable part is more conceivable to all of us. I’m happy that war-affected towns and villages are being restored; the life regains its vitality. People have faith and confidence in future, which is extremely important.”
Dwelling on the reasons behind alternation of the romantic approach to Artsakh, Mr. Berberyan answered, “people have different views in hardships. One must be optimistic. Hopefully, the ordinary citizen will feel the government’s support as a result of dynamic political processes.”
