“Dynamic, Exhilarating, Haunting New Armenian Sounds.” — New York Music Daily


Carved from a single block of mulberry wood, the long-necked tar has been the faithful companion of generations of Armenian bards. It’s found a new life as a front-and-center jazz voice, thanks to the innovators of MVF Band (short for Miqayel Voskanyan and Friends). Sometimes as sharp and percussive as a banjo, sometimes subtle and soft-spoken, in the capable hands of band leader and singer Voskanyan, the tar speaks powerfully of contemporary life’s struggles and joys.

Set as a standard jazz quartet of sax, keys, bass and drums — plus the tar — MVF Band has spent the last decade exploring new directions in Armenian music and perfecting their onstage connection. Moving across genres, they have played major jazz festivals around eastern Europe and central Asia, represented Armenia at music industry events like MIDEM in France and performed at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival and the Ford Theatre. Known for intertwining ancient folk idioms with progressive arrangements and original compositions, MVF Band challenges conventional thinking about the cross-pollination of eastern and western sounds and genres.
