About

The making of my new self produced album showcasing new compositions for guitar with various collaborations. 

The music comes from Flamenco, Armenian Folk, Jazz, world, and progressive music. As a musician, my influences are deeply rooted in my cultural traditions. Growing up, I was also exposed to the music of Flamenco by my father, which later led to many years of studying the craft in Andalucia, Spain under the guidance of some of the most respected and world renowned Flamenco guitarists. My upbringing took place in Los Angeles, where diversity in cultures is never an absence. The accumulation of these influences has been the catalyst to my sound as a composer and a guitarist.

“Genre bending guitarist”

"Vahagni is giving world music a respectable place in a contemporary landscape"

-The Armenian Reporter

"He has a style all his own"

Recording a full length studio album is like shooting a movie. One needs a great team of professionals and a good budget. It is not simply recoding music, rather, releasing an album which has many layers. With my experience of 3 previous self produced albums along with the efforts of grammy award winning producer Corey Rooney (Michael Jackson, Santana) and manny exciting collaborations including, Armenian woodwinds master Norair Kartashyan, Spanish Flamenco percussionist Ramon Porrinas and many more......recording my new album is at hand.

Thanks to outlets like Kickstarter, I am very grateful to have this opportunity to share and involve everyone in this new project.

Risks and challenges

No matter how prepared you are, when recording an album you always run into obstacles and challenges. I have been preparing for this album for a few years now and my biggest obstacle would be planning and scheduling around a great team of musicians and professionals. However, with a projected official release for Spring 2015, I am confidant that we have enough time and hopefully with the help of kickstarter and this campaign, the proper resources as well to reach that goal.
