Zulal Nominated for “Best Folk/World Album\" in 2005 International CARAs

New York, USA – Zulal, the Armenian A Cappella Folk Trio based
in New York and Boston, has been nominated for the “Best Folk/World Album” in
the 2005 International Annual Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards, an
influential annual competition that helps shape the a cappella music genre.
Other nominees include, Banana Boat, an all male group from Poland; Br6, a
six-member Brazilian ensemble; and Julian Spizz, a solo- performer. Competition
outcomes can be tracked online at www.casa.org.Zulal recently capped their CD tour with a well-attended New York performance at
the world music venue, Club Satalla on January 26th. The hometown show was a
much-anticipated event for both the trio and their local supporters. Audience
members and the Zulal trio alike enjoyed the evening. Come the fall of 2005,
Zulal is planning on sharing more of its music within New York City’s world
music scene.

February 2005 proved to be an active month for the trio, with performances in
both Canada and California. First in line was a full-length performance in
Montreal, Canada on Sunday, February 20th at 7:00pm hosted by the Friends of
Armenian Culture 2005 Concert Series. Next, Zulal headed back out to Los Angeles
for a benefit concert titled Hye Shakar, an annual event that helps fund the
Juvenile Diabetes Program of Armenia. Zulal performed alongside famed drummer
Jacob Armen.

With the CARA nomination and a bustling travel schedule, Zulal is rounding off
the winter season with a good deal of velocity. The trio has dedicated the
spring and summer months to writing and rehearsing new arrangements, so for
those of you who have an opportunity to see the trio before May rolls along, it
is an experience not to me missed.
