After announcing Essaï Altounian and Tamar Kaprelian as the first members of Genealogy, today, the Armenian national broadcaster ARMTV revealed the name of the 3rd member of the Armenian super group.
Meet Vahe Tilbian from Ethiopia! Vahe is an Armenian-Ethiopian artist with an enthusiastic and bright character. He has a unique style: from rock to techno, from reggae to R&B, from Armenian to Ethiopian, and all that mixed with a lot of Latin music. This blend of cultures expresses Vahe’s personality and makes him stand out as an exclusive artist and a passionate dancer.
It is really exciting how Armenia connects continents this year! So you are welcome to watch Vahe’s music video in Amharic (official language of Ethiopia)!
Born and raised in Ethiopia both his parents are of Armenian origin. Vahe heard the call of the stage as a singer only after he graduated from University of British Columbia in Vancouver. After working in the business sector for over three years as a young college graduate, Vahe left his job in 2008 and started working in music full time.
For two years now Vahe has been the lead singer of the Zemen Band as well as a columnist at Zoma Magazine published in Addis Ababa. He is fluent in Armenian, English, Amharic, Italian and French.
Vahe is also singing in Armenian. Watch his cover of Armenian song “Horovel” below.
So we know already know 3 names out of 6! This is how the Armenian Genealogy tree looks currently! Stay tuned to discover the next name of the group on January 27th!
