Zorayr is a former Armenian soldier who turned a life of violence into a love for music. His story is one of survival, passion, and perseverance.
He was born in Armenia in the 1980s when it was still part of the Soviet Union. He and his family were displaced to neighboring Georgia during the war with Azerbaijan. As a teenager, Zorayr became involved in criminal activity, where he was arrested and imprisoned following a raid on his home by Georgian police forces.
In prison, it was through music that he found solace from the violent environment around him; composing songs on scraps of paper that he found scattered about his cell floor .
While incarcerated, he composed over 40 songs which would later be released as an album titled ‘A military band from hell’.
Upon release from prison in 2009, Zorayr returned to Armenia for good and began performing at local venues before eventually joining Yerevan’s Movses Pogosyan Theatre
