On June 4, at 12:30 pm the Media Center hosted a press conference introducing the experimental music festival “Sounds of Peace”. The festival organized by Citizen Forum NGO will take place on July 6, from 18:00 to 20:00 in the Lovers’ Park.

The speakers of the Press Conference included representatives of five countries – Marine Manucharyan, President of Citizen Forum NGO (Armenia), Gaia Zuffa (Poland), Lasha Ugulava (Georgia), Mehmet Kanpalta (Turkey), Saoria Boyle and Paul Connoly (Northern Ireland).

The festival will feature experimental music performances. The aim of the event is to promote through music the culture of peace in Europe and contribute to the conflict resolution.

The festival aims at uniting young people around the concept of peace and creating a platform for collaboration. 

“Our general aim is to initiate a festival in Armenia that will have peace as its main concept, as we are a country of the a conflict zone. And we thought the invited participants should also represent conflict zones in one way or another”, Marine Manoucharyan says.

The group has spent a week in Dilijan, as a result 7 international bands were formed and new songs were written which will be introduced on Saturday, July 6th at the Lovers' Park. 

 “Armenia for me is not far from Europe and the attitude towards peace and conflict resolution s very European here, especially when it comes to the younger generation”, Paul Connoly is convinced.

Gaia Zuffa thinks it is interesting to work with young people, who don't need much time to form groups and make friends and artistic unions.

“I'm witnessing development in my country. When people gather around music, they understand there are better things than war”, Lasha Ugulava notes. 

Mehmet Kanpalta, the representative from Turkey, admits he is only glad to be in Armenia.

“I have many Armenian friends. And in Armenia I've only seen friendly attitude”, he mentions.
