On December 2nd, 2017, Sona Rubenyan, Ashough Nazeli and Sevak Amroyan transported us to Armenia with their beautiful voices and songs during the Sound of our Roots fundraising event.
Thank you to all those who joined us to raise funds for Hayastan Foundation's "Project Khantsk" (a multi-purpose centre built in the village of Khantsk, in the region of Askeran, Artsakh). Thank you to all our sponsors and our donors! Without your help and support, our event and project Khantsk would not have been possible.
