Eileen Khatchadourian is an award-winning artist who was born in Beirut in 1978 to an Armenian-Lebanese family. She grew up to the sounds of a piano that both her grandmother and aunt – pianists who studied at the conservatory of Rome – played. In December 2008, Khatchadourian launched her debut album Midan which is an exquisite mixture of traditional Armenian songs clashed to the rhythms of alternative rock. The album won “Best Rock Album” at the Armenian Music Awards in Los Angeles in 2009. Khatchadourian has performed in a number of different cities and countries. She has also performed at the “In Memoriam” concert in Istanbul, and in Palm Springs in May for the World Armenian Entertainment Awards where she won the award for Best Female Performer of the Armenian diaspora. Titernig, Khatchadourian’s latest album, was launched on April 17, 2015 at Station Beirut. Eileen Khatchadourian performed at her last concert in Istanbul at the 2015 International Hrant Dink Award Ceremony.
