Armenian Navy Band Wins World Music Award

YEREVAN (–Armenia’s favorite exotic ensemble–the Armenian Navy Band won last week the "Audience Award" of the prestigious BBC World Music Awards. The 12 member Armenian Navy Band was selected as a finalist two months ago through online voting by fans.

Four groups–including three others from Brazil–Iraq and Italy–were judged by a panel of music critics and Armenian Navy Band came out on top. The group’s founder and percussionist/vocalist Arto Tuncboyaciyan appeared at the BBC Awards ceremony and gave a 20-minute performance.
