Khatchadour Khatchadourian Dazzles Audiences With His Poignant Voice”

Khatchadour was born in Lebanon, and grew up singing for 7 years in the Syrian-Armenian children's choir, Karoun. He credits the start of his musical focus on meditative genres to his early years singing in Armenian Orthodox church. He began playing the Armenian woodwind, Duduk, in 2006. He holds Bachelor's degrees in both Anthropology & Middle Eastern Studies from the University of California, Berkeley. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Khatchadour is a founding member of the Sayat Nvaq Ensemble (Traditional Eastern Armenian, 2015), Saideh & Khatch (Persian & Armenian, 2014), and Yeraz Ensemble (Arabic & Armenian, 2018). He is also a supporting musician in the Kaavya Connections: World Poetry, Literature & Music. Khatchadour combines sacred Armenian and Arabic voice with Duduk and electronica. He works within world music, meditation, sound healing and ambient music genres.

Khatchadour's latest album focuses on Armenian lullabies.
