"Jazz was introduced into Armenia in mid 1930's. It's official birth in Armenia goes back to 1938 when the Armenian State Jazz Orchestra was founded by the composer Artemi Ayvazyan.
Jazz took roots and spread on the Armenian land both because of its great appeal and the amazing musical culture of our nation able to nurture and advance it. The common features of jazz and the Armenian national music, such as rhythm and harmony, contributed to this process"
