BELLY BEATS: JOHN BILEZIKJIAN TRIBUTE


 

*please note all of John’s amazing music is not available on spotify – for more music go here*

This playlist is in tribute to the life and music of legendary oud player, John Bilezikjian. I was sad to hear the news of his recent passing and wanted to do something to honor him here on TBB.

John’s music is an inspiration to dancers and musicians around the world. It’s full of beauty, complexities, and depth. His is the kind of music that makes you close your eyes and feel every strum of his oud.

Just a brief bio: John was an Armenian American based in L.A. Aside from being a master of the oud, John also played violin, mandolin, dumbek and bouzouki. He sang in Armenian, Turkish, Assyrian/Syriac and English. His other accomplishments include: starting his own record label – Dantz Records, collaborating with Leonard Cohen, Robert Palmer, Luis Miguel, Placido Domingo, Armen Chakmakian and Brothers of the Baladi, playing in several orchestras- Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, The Los Angeles Mandolin Orchestra, The Pacific Palisades Symphany, Boston Pops Orchestra, and Pasedena Pops Orchestra.

Alright guys, I’m gonna go dance to this playlist, hope you all enjoy. <3

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?

I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.

However just imagine if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!

Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this
website could definitely be one of the most beneficial in its field.
Excellent blog!
