Coming up on Jamie’s radio show…Tigran Hamasyan

This week, Jamie features Armenian-born jazz pianist Tigran Hamasyan in session at the BBC Maida Vale Studios.

Showcasing songs from his latest album A Fable, Tigran explains how he gravitated towards jazz and traditional Armenian folk music in his childhood in Armenia, and how he returned to these early inspirations for this album.
