    Tigran Hamasyan has shared the music video for "Leninagone," a song from his album An Ancient Observer. He dedicates the song and video to the children who survived the devastating Armenian earthquake that hit his home town of Gyumri (Soviet name: Leninakan) on December 7, 1988, twenty-nine years ago. "I come from the generation of children whose lives were directly affected by this tragic event," says Hamasyan.
