Album Notes
Zulal's music connects listeners to a simpler past, evoking the colors and characters of Armenia's village life where the celebration of nature, love, and tradition are dominant themes.

In this traditional Armenian Christmas carol entitled "Donadzar, Christmas Tree", the trio captures the light and magic of the season.

Christmas tree, you are so beautiful and bright.
How lovely you are.
All around, there are lights and shimmering.
With the red star at your peak,
Father Christmas beneath,
How lovely you are.

"Zulal, an a cappella trio of Armenian-American women who refract ancestral folk songs through the prism of the collegiate close-harmony group, and do so to spectacular effect." -Justin Davidson, New York Magazine

"The female a cappella trio Zulal take the rural folk music of Armenia and make it bewitching and transcendent." - Rick Massimo, Providence Journal

"Zulal is completely enchanting, providing rich and beautiful interpretations of ancient songs. They are one of the most exciting developments in Armenian music today."- Atom Egoyan

Wonderful melody and heavenly voices.... Thank you ladies!


I did not know many songs that I have listened were Armenians songs. Turks did not only killed and destroy Armenians also robbed their culture as wel.
