Click here to download an excerpt from the piece “Agahootyan”

The word “Agahootyan” literally means “Avarice”. The Naghash poem "Agahootyan" is a profound meditation of living a life not ruled by greed. 

“This world is a house full of treasure, splendor and riches,
But woe to all who are blinded by greed as they will be deprived of the kingdom of heaven”
— Mkrtich Naghash

The entire text of this poem and all the other poems from the Naghash Ensembles “Songs of Exile – Volume II” will be available in English, German French and Armenian upon the release of  the new CD and book. 

This work will not be able to continue without the help of supporters like you. Please pass our kickstarter along with your comments to anybody who might be interested in supporting The Naghash Ensemble new recording.
