Singer, educator Shake Makaryan has lived an interesting life. She was born in Iran, carried out activities there, and studied in Italy. In recent years, a big part of her life is connected with Armenia. She conveys to us some episodes from the cultural life of Iranian Armenians. The occasion for this broadcast is Araks Makaryan's (our guest's mother) book "Memories Turned into Ashes," which helps to reflect even on already forgotten events and feelings. "Our greatest desire was to come to the Fatherland in order to see with our own eyes what our older generation always told," confesses our guest.
