Konser Jazz Voyager 4

Voyager 4 is a jazz quartet that bridges music and science, initiated by Armenian pianist and composer Ohane Dourian in 2017. Dourian’s music compositions are inspired by the discovery and findings in contemporary science. Their music can be categorized as modern jazz: it’s a hodgepodge of ballad, fiery beats, rock fusion, electronic music as well as Armenian traditional music. Through what we see and hear, Voyager 4 will bring us on an adventure around the world in a poetic way in their concert on Friday, organized by IFI Jakarta.
