avatar for Armen Ra

Armen Ra

The mesmerizing style of Persian-Armenian theremin virtuoso Armen Ra, considered one of the finest thereminists in the world today, has garnered the admiration of fans on multiple continents.



Intrigued by this strange and one-of-a-kind instrument, Armen Ra began to study the theremin in 2001. His debut performance came later that year when he shared the stage with the orchestral group Antony & the Johnsons in New York City. Soon afterward, Armen’s well-attended solo concert at The Gershwin Hotel was covered by CNN.



His debut solo album, Plays The Theremin, showcases many classical Armenian laments and folk songs. Theremin Classique, released in 2015, features classical European Arias. Armen has performed and recorded with a large variety of artists and orchestras. Recent performances include touring with Nick Cave’s group Grinderman; collaboration with legendary British recording artist, Marc Almond, on his 2010 release, “Varieté”; being featured on Selena Gomez’s no. 1 album Revival; and being featured on Gwen Stefani’s no. 1 album This Is What the Truth Feels Like.
