Performed by Isabel Beyrakdarian and the Tatev Choir in 2004, from “A LONG JOURNEY HOME”, a documentary film produced by Stormy Nights Productions.  The film follows Isabel Bayrakdarian on an emotional pilgrimage and her first visit to her spiritual homeland. With the participation of pianist Serouj Kradjian, Komitas String Quartet, and Yerevan Chamber Choir among others, she performs selections from the sacred and secular music of Armenia in churches and ruins that are the most ancient in the world. Viewers are given the opportunity to visit a part of the world whose mystical landscape provides a haunting backdrop for the music.

The DVD is available on Amazon: A Long Journey Home – Isabel Bayrakdarian (DVD)

I was born in Croatia, at that time Yugoslavia. My family moved to the US when I was very young, but I still treasure the memories of my grandfather teaching me how to protect myself against the "evil eye," my grandmother shopping early every morning, at the open air market, to buy the freshest vegetables for the day's meals, and the traditions that were the underpinnings of our society. Someone once noted that "For all of us that want to move forward, there are a very few that want to keep the old methods of production, traditions and crafts alive." I am a fellow traveler with those who value the old traditions and folk wisdom. I believe the knowledge they possess can contribute significantly to our efforts to build a more sustainable world; one that values the individual over the corporation, conservation over growth and happiness over wealth.
