The music of guitarist, composer and educator Aram Bajakian has been called “a masterpiece”
(fRoots, July 2017), “shape-shifting” (FreeJazzCollective, January 2017), and “astonishing” (Georgia
Straight, March 2017).
As an instrumentalist, Bajakian had the privilege of performing alongside Velvet Underground
frontman Lou Reed during his last two tours in 2011 and 2012. In 2013, Bajakian toured in Diana
Krall’s band, performing over 100 concerts with the multiple-Grammy-award-winning singer, along
with violinist Stuart Duncan (Yo-Yo Ma’s Goat Rodeo, Robert Plant) and drummers Karriem Riggins
(Kanye West, Common, J-Dilla) and Jay Bellerose (Elton John, Rhiannon Giddens)
