Artsakh (Single)

Serjical Strike Records

Track List

1. Artsakh

Artsakh is a song that Serj Tankian wrote in April of 2016 after the most recent military actions that occurred in Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabagh). He was inspired to write a song of support to all those living in the affected region. 

A statement from Serj regarding the song is below:

"I was recently inspired to write a song for the people of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabagh). These people have lived on those lands for thousands of years. They have struggle but also great beauty written on their foreheads. The whimsical appropriation of land by an empire (Stalin) placed them under Azerbaijan. They have since gained their independence and have lived a prosperous existence for the last 20 or so years. I do not believe in wars and ultimately borders but I deeply believe in self determination and life without oppression. Therefore it is time for the world to recognize them as the Republic of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabagh).


Upon completing the studio recording of the song, friend and director Rand Courtney filmed a video for the song that was premiered by Rolling Stone on May 5, 2016. It can be found below.
