Armik

New flamenco guitarist Armik displayed an interest in and passion for music while still a young child. When he was just seven years old, he pawned his watch for a classical guitar, which he hid and practiced on in the basement. Formal music lessons followed and Armik completed the Rudolph Solphege program in two years; at 12, he was a professional recording artist. While his early career focused mostly on jazz, Armik discovered the beauty and passion of flamenco while visiting and studying in Spain during the '70s. He moved to Los Angeles to pursue this new direction, playing with other artists live and in the studio.

By 1994 he released his solo debut album, Rain Dancer, a critical and commercial success that he followed with 1995's Gypsy Flame. At this point, Armik's reputation as a performer and student of flamenco was such that expert Spanish luthier Pedro Maldonado created an instrument for him, the Rubia; Armik's 1996 album was recorded with and named after it. The following year saw the release of Malaga, and his fifth album, Isla del Sol, appeared in 1999, followed by Rosas del Amor in the spring of 2001. Released in 2002, Lost in Paradise showed him making a sensual and elegant album that offered a different take on his traditional flamenco.

His releases have consistently reached Top Ten positions on Billboard's charts of top-selling new age music, and during the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, two tracks from Armik's recordings were played during the floor exercises to accompany gymnast Daniela Sofronie of Romania. That year, Armik released his first album on his own Bolero imprint, Romantic Dreams. Releases such as Mar de Sueños and the compilation Desires: The Romantic Collection followed. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi

@ncboomer200 4 - I fell in love with Armik's music back in the 90's when I first heard and bought Gypsy Flame. I have followed his music ever since. You should also check out Benise (especially Night of Fire) and the concert that goes with it. Breathless.

We listen to Smooth Jazz on Pandora from the time we get up till 8pm-10pm when we watch Netflix or DTV...but when this came on the TV I dropped what I was doing in the kitchen and ran into the lvg room to see WHAT and WHO this was! I sat on the sofa and became mezmerized by the sounds he made and have never heard anything like this EVER! I'm 68 yrs of age so that's really saying something! Now I have to find the album he has on here with that EXACT track on it....he's amazing!!!

I don't really care where he's from but I do hear his heritage in his playing as well as aspects of Flamenco, Classical, Spanish/Lati n / G y p s y , & Jazz in his music. Reminds me a bit of Ardeshir Farah (Strunz & Farah) with whom he shares a Mid-Eastern background. Excellent all the way around imho.

Wow!! What a music!! Armik is Armenian born in Iran.
Report as inappropriate
Simply beautiful! He certainly sprincles that Iranian Arminian flavor of his background to his wonderful music even if his bio fails to reveal where this great artist was born and raised for some reason!

Don't read this because it actually works. You will get kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. However if you do not post this to at least three songs you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in at least 143 minutes when if done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is scary cuz it actually works.
