RBO, an independent London-based youth group has collaborated with Dukes
Avenue Records to bring you the worlds first-ever contemporary youth
compilation Armenian CD; Hokis Volume Meg. An album for young Armenians by
young Armenians.

Hokis Volume Meg was recorded at Airtank Studios in London and features artists from Beirut and Boston. Singers, musicians and rappers from different musical backgrounds combine their talents with one common theme being Armenian. If you want Armenian kids to listen to Armenian music, then Armenian music needs to be updated. Its not plain sailing for any of us so this is a perfect platform from which to express ourselves and its about time we did, adds Armen Cholakian, Executive Producer of Dukes Avenue Records.
Every songs lyrics are expressed in a powerful, honest and realistic tone, some serious, some humorous. What will surprise a lot of people is how Armenian vocals have been blended with many of todays musical styles. Comprising 11 very different tracks and 10 comical interludes, Hokis Volume Meg promises to capture the imagination of Diasporan Armenians worldwide. Topics covered range from Hye Babas, Anoushig Aghchigs, Barsigs versus Gor Gors, to marriage and Genocide - hitting on the issues which are close to our hearts.

Dukes Avenue Records Executive Producer, Harout Bozadjian, states we really feel that we have created something special. The next step for us is to tour, we need to take the music to the people, especially the younger generation. This album will inject people with pride.

On top of the 22 track CD, there is also a glitzy music video for the song Inch Butjarad, with London landmarks acting as a fitting backdrop. A highly informative website has also been assembled providing artist profiles, track samples and behind the scenes footage. Hokis Volume Meg was officially released on August 1st and can be purchased online at www.hokis.co.uk.
