No Grammy for Isabel Bayrakdarian

Unfortunately, Isabel Bayrakdarian -shortlisted for Best Vocal Performance Grammy Nomination with Komitas’ songs was not selected as a winner. Anyway, in my opinion, it was good chance once again  present armenian ethnomusic to the world, like Jivan Gasparyan and Ara gevorgyan done.
