Links

Armenian melodies, classical influences, jazz and a touch of electronica mingle seamlessly in Authentic Light Orchestra’s creations. Founder Valeri Tolstov comes from a distinguished classical background, opting in 2009 to dive into Armenian folk music to connect more deeply with his roots. He chose outstanding companions for the quest: jazz and folk virtuoso Veronika Stadler as singer; creative and subtle Andi Pupato as percussionist, and versatile Franz Hellmüller on guitar. The resulting fusion is emotive, intelligent and playful: it creeps under your skin without you noticing.
