Ara Malikian – Royal Garage World Tour

Event Description:

Ara Malikian, prodigious Lebanese violinist, arrives in our country as part of his Royal Garage World Tour, in a single presentation, on June 8 at Teatro Melico Salazar.

Started in violin by his father in a bunker in Beirut in the middle of civil war in Lebanon, this musician received a scholarship in Germany and has lived in Spain for almost 20 years, where he arrived to join Madrid Symphony Orchestra. However, his iconoclastic character made him start an original solo career, in which has fused classical music, rock and pop becoming what different media have called a “mass phenomenon”.

In most ambitious album of his career, “Royal Garage”, great artists like Enrique Bunbury, Andrés Calamaro, Pablo Milanés and Serj Tankian collaborate. Concept of Royal Garage comes from Ara Malikian’s relationship with garages: “In 1976, when war in Lebanon broke out, in the whole world most modern bands rehearsed in garages, took their sounds out of there and created a style that would change history of music, and I didn’t want to be left without being part of that movement“, says the violinist.
