Calm and mellow, Serj Tankian seems like he could easily write "The Rock Star's Guide to Zen." His music, however, is where the emotions soar – "a violin in a storm," as he described to me years ago. Sounds range from the angry metal howls of his group, System of a Down, to the round-the-world musical odyssey of his side project, Serart. 

Arto Tuncboyaciyan, an Armenian avant-garde multi-instrumentalist, makes up the other half of Serart. Arto has worked with the likes of Chat Baker and Al Di Meola, and fronts the Armenian Navy Band.
