Gilbert Biberian RIP (1944-2023)

Rest in Peace, Love and Power, my dear friend, fellow musician and Middle Easterner. The great Armenian Greek Turkish composer and guitarist, Gilbert Biberian, left us a few days ago to be with the One.

The photo below was taken during my interview with Gilbert for my BBC Radio 4 documentary “Distant Chords”. This particular episode was called “My Book, My Mountain, My Self” [The Bible, Mount Ararat, cultural identity], about the beautiful music of the Armenian community in the UK, 2003.

“To God we Belong… And to Him we Shall Return”, The Holy Quran (2:156)

Հանգչիր խաղաղությամբ  إِنَّا ِلِلَّٰهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ

From the making of BBC Radio 4’s Distant Chords My Book, My Mountain, My Self, focussing on the music of the Armenian community in the UK. Written & presented by Reem Kelani.
