In this context, I would like to point out Michael Ashjian, an artist living in the Libanon with Armanian-Libanese roots. Musically speaking, Ashjian has a classical background. After his parents became aware of his musical talent, he started to play the piano at the age of 8, and from then on, this remained his instrument.
