This song is my anthem for healing in the diaspora. An expression of being an Armenian-American fiddler searching for connection to my ancestry, through studying myths and stories from Armenian culture. Combined with a vision for #fiddletronica, in collaboration with eO, I am so excited for this song!

Lyrics

I wanna see my mama in the sweet scented jasmine vines,
I wanna hear my father in that ocean rollin with time.
I got a grandma callin' through her mountain
As I sing in the valley below
And my grandpa’s watchin’ through these paintings of his
Callin’ out, “hey that’s my girl!”

Well I’m singing over the bones
I’m singing over the bones
Like a river running over stones
I’m singing over the bones

Oh goddess (Anahit)
Watch the children (Anahit)
As they come into this world.
Pour your wisdom (Anahit)
From your fingers (Anahit)
In the water she clears your soul
There’s a god that’s wielding the fire, he’s the keeper of holy flame,
And his stories call out to dragons, writing wisdom into their names.

Well I’m singing over the bones
I’m singing over the bones
Like a river running over stones
I’m singing over the bones

I don’t know how I got so far, so far
From my mountain, that holy mountain
Ararat reclaim my soul, Ararat reclaim my soul.
For these poets and mystics, poets and mystics
I’m here to reclaim my soul…

I’m looking back as I step forward
Rootin’ down as I reach up
Callin’ out to the voices of mothers
I can’t see but I know they’re there.

Well I’m singing over the bones
I’m singing over the bones
Like a river running over stones
I’m singing over the bones
