ARMIG & SAYAT NOVA
Armig is a shy boy who longs to sing with the great singer Sayat Nova who happened to be one of the best Armenian musicians of all time. Ever since his father's passing, he has become more of a recluse and while his friends are out playing and having a good time, he is looking after sheep and doing chorus that are suitable for older people. He has put aside his dreams of singing at all, let alone the great Sayat Nova.
Things do change due to an accidental encounter with the great musician who finds out what Armig's father has done in the village and vows to make the boy's life better. ARMIG & SAYAT NOVA by KATIE ATIKIAN and the illustrations by ALISON ATIKIAN.
