One of the few songs in the world that charms me in seconds and starts storms in my soul is “Hayastan” by one of Armenia’s greatest singers that passed away few years ago.
The strength of this song has no limits…it connects you to your roots, it gives you chills and shivers and tears and leaves you speechless. The only song that reminds you of things you never felt, the song that takes you in the past and helps you understand and feel every single bullet and knife strike. A song that leaves you in the middle of the desert, to suffer next to your ancestors starving, hopelessly walking, as if God forgot of them.
A song that reminds you of every single stone in your motherland, every drop in the lakes, every single smile that hides a heart barbarically tortured.
A song to be remembered.
