Կomidas

$ 26.00

Considered the most celebrated Armenian musical figure in history, Gomidas/Komitas and his genius have gained fame throughout the world. As a priest, composer, choirmaster and musicologist, Կomidas inhabited many roles during his lifetime and was a passionate and rebellious figure, often butting heads with the Armenian Church as he attempted to introduce new musical forms. This friction resulted in his relocation to Constantinople where he achieved a great amount of popularity organizing concerts for international audiences featuring the Armenian folk songs he regularly collected.  Before the Armenian Genocide, Կomidas almost succeeded in cracking the code of the ancient musical Armenian neume system of notation, featured on this t-shirt which honors his meaningful and magical legacy. He survived the mass deportations of Armenians that began in 1915, though the traumatic events had a lasting effect on him.
