Bedouine: Folk via Armenia, Aleppo, Saudi Arabia, Texas, Kentucky, Massachusetts and California

The singer Bedouine has quite a background:

Azniv Korkejian – Bedouine – is of Armenian descent. She was born in Aleppo, Syria and grew up in Saudi Arabia. A profile at NPR said that her parents won “the green-card lottery” when she was 10 years old and the family moved to Massachusetts. The Korkejian’s travels did not end: They have liked in Texas, Kentucky and California.

I heard “One of These Days” on the great WFUV FM, the radio station of Fordham University in New York City.

Here is part of the last paragraph in the bio at 32-year-old singer’s site:

Eschewing notions of nomadic chic, Bedouine represents minimalism motivated by travel, paring down and paring down until only the essential remains. Her music establishes a sustained and complete mood, reflecting on the unending reverberations of displacement, unafraid to take pleasure along the way.

Below is “Nice and Quiet.”
