Let's Eat Let's Eat

ACOM's annual Gaghant was held on Saturday January 14th at Como Dockside Event Center.

Festivities started at 5:30PM with a social hour with Hors-d'Ouevres followed by a buffet dinner with salad offerings, pulled pork, chicken and fish served New Orleans style, a scrumptious vegetarian Étouffé, grilled vegetables, and rice. A silent auction was held throughout the evening ending at 8:30PM. A presentation given by Peter Hajinian (ACOM Vice President) showed highlights of the year 2016. Peter also introduced the current ACOM Executive committee and the membership voted to add Andrea Johnson to the board as co-secretary. After the presentation, dessert was served including cupcakes from Lou Ann celebrating her birthday. The evening was capped off with music by "Music Mundial" playing Armenian tunes and a lot of dancing by young and young at heart. Thanks to all who attended and keep your calendar open for next years party.

Հորովել - Horovel covered by Վահէ Թիլպեան - Vahe Tilbian

The masterpiece written by Komitas, with a different and unique interpretation here introducing the "mesenko", a traditional Ethiopian instrument, in the mix resulting in some mix of cultures, a true "mixology" of my Ethiopian Armenian-ness.
Thanks Kenny Allen, Endris Hassen, (we regret the spelling error in the video editing) and of course the great Komitas!
