Tigrane Kazazian, born at the foot of The Giza Pyramids in 1987 in Egypt, is a French and Armenian composer, multi-instrumentalist, (oudist – pianist – singer) who has journeyed through several traditions of the world and founded the Nour Project as well as the Kazazian Trio.
Nour, meaning light in Arabic and pomegranate in Armenian, is the project created by Georges Kazazian and Tigrane Kazazian, born in Yerevan, Armenia, in autumn 2017.
Nour project is a journey into the world of sounds, imagination, and movement. The music is a fragile balance between composition and improvisation. The colors develop from traditional to contemporary music. However, it is difficult to describe the music with words, listening tells all.

The music draws upon an eclectic spectrum of influences and meditative soundscapes made of a subtle blend between improvisations and clear compositions, keeping the audience captivated throughout by the rhythms variations, and the energy flow between the three musicians.
