Biography

Tashkent

Karen Gafurdjanov (in Russian: Карен Гафурджанов) was born in 1974 in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.
As he said, he is the first boy of the fifth generation of Gafurdjanov’s family and the first one, whose name is not Uzbek (His grandma wanted to call him Karen). Bursting into music in 1999, he participated to various music events, being the first artist representing his country.

Mixing music with the oldest Uzbek traditions, he attempts to express the whole heritage of Uzbek culture to the younger generations.
Karen is all-in-one talented person: he composes music, writes lyrics, sings and plays several instruments: solo-guitar, bass guitar, keyboard, percussion, doira and rubob. His songs are in Uzbek, English, Russian and Georgian.
In 2005 he recorded his first solo album Sensiz ne hayot (in Russian: Сенсиз не хаёт).

In 2007 Putumayo World Music included Gafurdjanov’s Yor Uzga in its balkan beats oriented compilation Gypsy Groove.
