Hope to see you this Thursday from 3pm - 5pm at the next Kavat Coffee event Groundwork Coffee Co. in Downtown LA.

What can I say ? The people of Armenia have made their voice heard loud and clear so much so that the previous ruling parties (the RPA and ARF in Armenia) couldn’t even garner the 5% threshold to enter Parliament! This will give acting PM Pashinyan the mandate to follow through with further reforms and pursue programs to create much needed economic development within the country. Entities, previously protected by the state, who have been involved in flagrant corruption and injustices enacted upon citizens of Armenia for years will be brought to justice or pay their dues. The Armenian diaspora can no longer be a distant viewer waiting to see what will happen. It happened. It’s time to participate in the enrichment of our homeland. This is truly a momentous occasion in Armenian history and a victory we should cherish.

Very proud of my brothers and sisters in Armenia who will be going to the polls to vote for a new parliament after having freed themselves of a corrosive, unjust, corrupt regime earlier this year. It annoys me to read quotes from relics like Armen Ashotyan, from the RPA, complaining about not having enough time to ready themselves for the election after plundering the country for 20 years. I’m happy to hear that former President Robert Kocharian is back in jail. The people of Armenia want and deserve justice for past injustices and should be holding all those responsible accountable. Presidents who become billionaires while in office by using their office for personal gain are not patriotic, they are corrupt. Armenia’s revolution and new path is a prime example of how a country can transition peacefully to a progressive egalitarian society. There is much work to be done, especially economically, but the important thing is that people are awake and empowered.

Last night was the first time I saw and heard the film “Spitak” in a theater. As as a composer I love hearing my scores at least once in a theater where it’s destined to be heard. Everyone I invited was quite impressed with the film, it’s scope, artistic cinematography and the strength of the story. It is only on for a week at the Laemmle Glendale so please make time to go see it ASAP.

Hey All, I am excited to announce the release of the soundtrack to “Spitak”, the award winning film directed by Alexander Kott about the devastating 1988 earthquake in Armenia that I composed the musical score for. Check it out at the below for links to iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, and more. I’m honored that Armenia has chosen this film to represent the country's selection for the 91st @theacademy Awards. #spitak #soundtrack #spitakfilm #спитак1988 #спитак #spitak1988 #serjtankian #alexanderkott #itunes #applemusic #spotify

The shockwaves of the devastating 1988 earthquake in Armenia reverberated across the world. I was taken back by the global efforts to try and recover and rebuild after the shaking and rubble led to the death of over 25,000 people. Many of us here in LA also did what we could to help. I remember going door to door with friends soliciting contributions for those in need. Nearly 30 years later, as the musical composer for the award winning film “Spitak", I’m honored that Armenia has chosen the film to represent the country for the 91st @theacademy Awards. The film will premiere in theaters across Russia beginning this Thursday November 29 (go to https://kinohod.ru/widget/movies/12314 for tickets and theater listings) and will have screenings in the LA area at Laemmle’s in Glendale for 1 week beginning December 7. Check out the trailer below. #spitak #soundtrack #spitakfilm #спитак1988 #спитак #spitak1988 #serjtankian #alexanderkott

A really great news piece highlighting the sacrifice of a New Zealand soldier who died protecting victims of the genocide of Assyrians, Armenians and Greeks and the hypocrisy of not using the word genocide by nations allied with Turkey.

No, the Finns don’t rake their forests (and their forests don’t burn like California because they are in the north where it rains a lot) but they do have an incredible social healthcare system and when a baby is born the state provides a package to each family to provide for the child for the first 6 months. There are many great things to learn from progressive nations, raking is not one of them.

Violence against women and children should never be tolerated in any society due to so called traditions or stereotypes. After years of persistent efforts, last year the law on domestic violence was passed in Armenia and went into force in July of this year. While its adoption is a positive step, the law was so watered down that it continues to effectively be incompatible with international standards in the protection of women against violence. We hope that the new Parliament changes this.

Unconscionable acts of supporting oppressive governments who trample upon the rights of their citizens just to maintain bases and other Geo-political advantage should no longer be tolerated.
