Throughout history, music and dance have served to bind the Armenian community together and create new identifies while paying homage to traditions of the past. Each year, musicians and dancers from all over Armenia come together in Cafesjian Center for the Arts to participate in the Gutan Folk Music and Dance Festival, with performances from each of the different regions of the country. The festival, which aims to preserve and disseminate traditional songs and dances, brings young and old to celebrate and learn together. Visitors can take part in the fun, singing along and learning traditional Armenian dance.
