Proceeds will go to benefit the charity Orran and the AYF Youth Corps

Orran, meaning "haven" in Armenian, was established in downtown Yerevan in April 2000. The Center started with 16 children, but within six months, it had grown to embrace more than 26 at-risk elderly and 40 socially vulnerable children, some of whom were orphans. The number of these beneficiaries keeps increasing; with the two centers, Yerevan & Vanadzor, by the end 2014, serving more than 80 elderly and more than 190 children, ranging in age from five to sixteen years.

I was born in 1978. I am Armenian. I live in the Los Angeles area. I have played and studied music since childhood. I started my first band at 15 and producing professionally at 18. My current project Capital Cities has an award-winning chart-topping global hit called "Safe and Sound."
Bei Ru
Bei Ru
Bei Ru is a Los Angeles-based multi-genre music producer/composer known for his unconventional use of Middle Eastern melodies and rhythms combined with heavy drums, electronics, and a plethora of live instrumentation.

In the fall of 2010, Bei Ru released his debut album, ‘Little Armenia (L.A.)’, which received much critical acclaim as well as support from artists and listeners alike.

His new album, ‘Saturday Night At The Magic Lamp’, blends electronica, Middle Eastern influences, funk and hip-hop, featuring musicians playing electric bass, electric guitar, electric oud, cello, keyboards and piano. He recently scored three songs for the upcoming film A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night (watch the trailer), an Iranian vampire western produced by Elijah Wood and distributed by Vice Films. Saturday Night At The Magic Lamp is now available on iTunes.

“The sound of a diaspora that settled in Los Angeles, Armenian music filtered through Dr. Dre’s The Chronic and underground hip-hop.”
— LA Weekly
K'noup

It was 1992 when i first picked up on music as i woke up to a voice in my head that forever changed my life. That morning i wanted that voice to be heard around the world but as immature as i was to call myself a singer just yet, i knew it would take sacrifice. Its been 21 years since and needless to say that voice has been still calling out to those willing to listen. Born in Kastoria, Greece, raised in New York I now reside in Los Angeles where the journey has been my only muse. Singing, songwriting & touring is something i have been blessed with to an extent, for we all mask our ability to do something special, its up to us to zone in on it and bring it to life. My name is K’noup and i am a singer and songwriter for the bands Viza, Minor Movements & Neurobox.
String Harmonies

Red Snow
Red Snow
You’re not likely to find members of Red Snow dropping names at a Hollywood Hills pool party. Instead, over the years, and despite personnel rotations, this Hollywood rock band has built a loyal fan base and avoided compromise of any kind. By harnessing the power of the internet this “Armenian/American Mythical Powerhouse” in-the-making has made no apologies for their Hard-Core Metal sound in a town that seldom celebrates originality.
R-Mean
R-Mean
Los Angeles-born, Armenian-American rapper R-Mean is bringing word of his mountainous ancestral republic to one of our biggest cultural expressions of all: hip-hop. As the first rapper of Armenian descent to achieve his level of international and national acclaim. His multi-cultural background and extensive fan base has afforded him multiple opportunities to perform around the world including Canada, Europe, and all over the United States. R-Mean’s lyrical prowess and melodious flow has amounted to national recognition, famous friends and critical acclaim. With a flow reminiscent of Nas and Eminem, influenced by his diverse, upbringing, always staying true to organic Hip-Hop, R-Mean breaks international barriers through his music like no other.

Born in Los Angeles, he was raised in Amsterdam by a single mother, after losing his father who succumbed to an ill-timed death due to medical malpractice. Growing up he faced the dark challenges and oppression posed to minorities. Using college as a means of moving to California to pursue his musical dreams, he graduated from UCLA and went on to obtain a Doctor of Pharmacy degree from Loma Linda University. During his schooling he continued recording and developing himself as artist but chose to stop working as a pharmacist a couple years ago to instead heal people through music instead of medication.

R-Mean’s lyrical prowess and melodious flow has amounted to national recognition, famous friends and critical acclaim. Armed with a strong and loyal fan base that never fails to show how much his music touches people's lives. He is honored to have received fan mail with heart felt testimonials and pictures of people bearing tattoos of his name and lyrics. He has been featured as the opening act for Nas, Bone Thugs N’ Harmony and most recently Method Man and headlined sold out concerts at notable venues like the House of Blues Sunset, Troubadour and the Mayan LA. His most notable live radio and TV accomplishments include appearances on MTV’s “Rapfix” with Mobb Deep (2012) and "Rapfix" year end cypher (2014), freestyling on the world famous “Wake Up Show” on Power 106 and Shade 45, and numerous appearances on “Sway in the Morning” on Shade45. His music video "Lost Angels" featuring multi-platinum artist The Game debut on MTV Jams in Nov 2013 and his highly anticipated mix-tape "Far from Heaven" (iTunes) dropped in Nov 2013. His song Open Wounds dedicated to the Armenian Genocide lead to the foundation of Open Wounds 1915 organization to spread awareness through hip-hop and social media. The movement has reached to all corners of the world in just one year. In July 2015 R-Mean released his most ambitious album to date, 7 Deadly Sins, on Pentagon Records. The album was announced via a Kickstarter campaign which raised $54k in pre-orders. In October 2016 he released the “Nas & Em” tribute mixtape with Dj Base featured on HotNewHipHop.com.
