Eileen Khatchadourian is a recording artist who was born in Beirut in 1978 to an Armenian-Lebanese family. She grew up to the sounds of a piano that both her grandmother and aunt – pianists who studied at the conservatory of Rome – played.
In December 2008, Khatchadourian launched her debut album “Midan” – under her full name Eileen Khatchadourian – which is an exquisite mixture of traditional Armenian songs clashed to the rhythms of alternative rock. The album won “Best Rock Album” at the Armenian Music Awards in Los Angeles in 2009. A few years down the road in March 2013, Eileen performed at her first concert in Los Angeles for the Mosaic Festival to a crowd of 4000 who welcomed her with unique enthusiasm.
Khatchadourian has performed in a number of different cities and countries, but mainly Dubai, Yerevan, Moscow, San Gabriel (California), and Beirut. She will also be performing in the upcoming “In Memoriam” concert in Istanbul shortly, and in Palm Springs in May for the World Armenian Entertainment Awards where she is nominated for the Best Vocalist of the Armenian diaspora.
