Ara Malikian is a world-renowned violinist. He is often called “a Lebanese virtuoso dusted with Armenian spices”. The classically educated musician has, over the years, mixed music from different cultures, including Spanish flamenco, Argentine tango and gipsy music. His interpretations are rooted in Arabic and Jewish culture. He also often plays rock song covers and film hits during concerts.

Born in 1968, he now lives in Madrid. Malikian has recorded more than 40 albums and produced many plays.

For his musicality and virtuosity, as a young violinist, he was awarded the Niccolò Paganini Prize. Because of his stage image, he is also known as “the Jimi Hendrix of the violin”.
