East Coast native and Columbia student Antranig Kzirian is bringing his band Viza to New York City for a very special show on Friday, May 21, 2010 at the Knitting Factory in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Viza is a blend of rock, metal and middle eastern influences and is managed by System of a Down lead singer Serj Tankian’s label Serjical Strike (http://www.serjicalstrike.com/site/artists_view.php?id=16) and also just released the single “Viktor” which features guest vocals by Tankian (available at http://www.facebook.com/vizamusic). Viza also features the duduk of Jivan Gasparyan, Jr., grandson of the legendary Armenian duduk master of the same name.
Viza has been covered in the LA Times http://articles.latimes.com/2009/apr/24/local/me-armenian24 for its social justice work and activism on human rights – and is working with the ANC and AYF to bring this special concert to New York.
