The artist describes his tour as an encounter with the child he never had the chance to be
Ara Malikian is a Spanish violinist of Lebanese origin and Armenian descent. At an early age, his talent was recognized despite the Lebanese civil war forcing him to leave his home. Tour 15, one of his biggest in recent years, was a success with audiences and critics alike, bringing in over 175,000 spectators at over 150 concerts. After his last Petit Garage tour, the result of the transforming his previous Royal Garage tour into a piano and violin show, with which he toured the world, he’s now back with The Ara Malikian World Tour.
Malikian defines his new tour as “the result of seeing my son grow, of my growth by his side, is all those sounds and melodies that try to shape what I have felt and the inspiration I have drawn from him and from life through him. It is an encounter with the child that I never had the chance to be and would have dreamed of being. It is a homage to those beings who are as free as a free bird.”
