The brainchild of pianist and composer Ara Sarkissian, MUSANER has been active on the Boston music scene since October, 2007. Since that time, the group's original blend of jazz orchestration and folk music from Armenia has been greeted with acclaim from critics and audiences alike. A unique blend of ensemble writing and improvisational freedom where folk instruments meet a jazz ensemble, MUSANER's performances can be best described as inspiring, evocative and entertaining at the same time. This is their second appearance at the Regattabar this year and tonight's
performance will feature new works which the group has been preparing to include in their second recording.
