The aim of the new project is to make national, folk and spiritual music widespread, to contribute to the world recognition of Armenian culture and musical art. The director of “Radiojan” emphasizes that the lack of such projects has been heard for a long time and she also says: “People love national songs, our audience calls us and asks to play more songs like those.”
The “Armenian National Music Treasury” is one of the biggest projects of the “Renaissance” Foundation. In this way, the foundation tries to preserve the Armenian cultural heritage and pass it on to the generations.
