Homage features the Ara Topouzian Quartet recorded live in concert in Detroit, Michigan. This album features a collection of traditional Armenian dance music. Ara Topouzian on kanun (76-stringed harp) leads the group including master musicians Mal Barsamian on oud (11-stringed lute), Leon Janikian on clarinet and Mike Shimmin on percussion. Detroit, Michigan has always been called a melting pot of people and cultures, a place for thousands of immigrants to settle - including the Armenians. This album pays tribute to the immigrant and first generation Armenian musicians that performed in Detroit.
