Armenia’s Independence Day is especially colorful in Yerevan. Celebrations start 21 September around 6:00pm usually in the Republic Square.

Armenian music is unique in that it incorporates peasant, secular and ceremonial rhythms in all its styles, and can easily be identified as a “mountain music” in the way it imitates the elements and natural surroundings.  At the same time, the music of Armenia has been constantly evolving throughout its history, incorporating new dimensions while retaining the core of its own specific sound.

You can partake and experience the fullness of culture the Republic Square Yerevan alone, not to mention other squares, such as, Cascade, Komitas Conservatory, and many others.
