The Tagharan program is dedicated to the spiritual and folk branches of Armenian music. At the heart of the creation of the program is the idea of kinship of these two branches, which was first scientifically dealt with by Komitas. In the episodes of the program, we consider the relationship between Armenian folk and sacred music branches, present the stages of their historical development and their genre manifestations, describe the music component of folk and Church rites, reflect on the most important works of Church singing art as well as discuss actual problems of Armenian medieval studies and folklore with specialists.
From July 28-31, 2016, the 37th Euroradio Folk Festival and the 24th Viljandi Folk Music Festival were jointly organized in Estonian Viljandi. Armenia was represented within the scope of these festivals by the Nubar Folk Dance and Song Group. Nubar's performance was received with great enthusiasm and high rating both by the audience and the organizers of the festival. During this broadcast, we are discussing the details of this event with Nubar's artistic director Lusine Nazaryan, members Sona Grigoryan and Alla Mkheyan, as well as responsible for the Public Radio's division of external relations Ani Mosinyan.
