This album is a duo project with the outstanding pianist and keyboarder Vahagn Hayrapetyan of the “Armenian Navy Band”.
All compositions are “book marks” in Arto Tunçboyaciyan’s extraordinary life story and 35-years lasting carreer as a composer, multi-instrumentalist and singer.
All songs in “Love Is Not in Your Mind” are never ending "love stories" : "Welcome Boo Boo" - an exuberant joyfull song for the birth of Arto’s son Seto 19 years ago... or "New Flower" - a love affair with his new instrument "Bular" build by the great Armenian instrument maker Armen Blbulian some years ago - resounding fragile-melancholy moods about difficult human trials. The poetic power of the lyrics is expressed with a unique voice coaxe with hand-drums bakdav played with innocent happiness.
This album is complementary to “Artostan” a solo album by Arto Tunçboyaciyan published on Heaven and Earth (HE19) contemporaneously. Both are introducing Artos’s philosophy and highest values "Love, Respect and Truth".
