Sareri Hovin Mernem [Lena Chamamyan]
Lena Chamamyan is an Arabian women who was born and raised in Damascus, Syria. From the beginning of her childhood she start elementary school in her home town and finished her higher education in Damascus as well. At a very young age she developed a love for music and began to participate in her elementary and secondary school musical events, which first began at the age of five. She religiously started studying music at the age of nine which then lead to countless musical positions due to her voice being such a blessing.
Chamamyan graduated from with an Economics major while at Damascus University in 2002, but while getting her education in economics she still maintain a musical balance in her life. She also picked up another title from the Damascus University in 2007 as a vocalist. Most of her musical sounds categorized into jazz. How amazing is her voice actually if she developed this sound of Arabian Jazz? Everyone around her was amazed at her unique voice, which she mentioned was heavily influenced by oriental jazz and Armenian music.
There was not much information about her (well...at least in English) for me to write more about her on, but I did take some time and listen to her album she released in 2006, 2007, 2010. Most of her songs, after the translation, connect with love and the Arab world. In one song that I replayed a couple of times, Al Rozana, had a very Hispanic/Cuban dance feel to it. It speaks upon a women lover leaving and letting the man left alone and searching for her.
And I am still going to continue to play her music, what more could I ask for when good music comes my way?
