Singer Ilda Simonian’s art is rooted in the distinctive, ancient tradition of Armenian music, encompassing medieval liturgical song, the traditional folk music of Eastern Anatolia and Transcaucasia, and the Armenian classical music of composers.
The diversity of this musical heritage comes to life in Ilda’s concerts.
Born in Istanbul, Ilda Simonian discovered at an early age a passion for singing. Her personality manifests itself in her passionate interpretation of the melancholic Armenian songs. As a performer, she is a perfectionist, which underlines her professionalism. Her repertoire does not only include the great Armenian composers, but also Western classical music.
Ilda is a singer with a message, who aims to acquaint her audience with a wide range of Armenian composers and folk songs, introducing them to the venerable liturgical tradition and the work of such composers as Sayat Nova, Komitas, Melikian, Merangulian, Ganachian, Hekimian, Balian, Ajemian, and Avedisian, Alemshah.
Ilda combines professionalism with a good measure of playfulness, authenticity, and sophistication, thus achieving a synthesis which never fails to captivate her audience. With her rich mezzo-soprano and intimate interpretations she has added depth and meaning to the ancient Armenian language and musical tradition.
