The mesmerizing style of Persian-Armenian theremin virtuoso, Armen Ra, has garnered the admiration of fans on multiple continents. He is considered one of the finest thereminists in the world today. Intrigued by this strange and one-of-a-kind instrument, Armen Ra began to study the theremin in 2001. His debut performance came later that year when he shared the stage with the orchestral group, Antony & The Johnsons, in New York City. Soon afterward, Armen’s well attended solo concert at The Gershwin Hotel was covered by CNN.
