Armenia, Lithuania and Bulgaria presented their culture during the event organized at UNESCO Headquarters to celebrate International Francophonie Day and the tenth anniversary of the UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage. Armenia was represented by duduk player Levon Minasyan.

“Musicians and dancers performed masterpieces of the Armenian Duduk, the Bulgarian Bistritsa Babi and the Lithuanian Sutartinės, all of which are inscribed on UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage, reflecting the wealth of these cultures, their common influences and their interactions, handed down from generation to generation, forging close ties between peoples throughout history,” UNESCO said in a statement.

Director-General of UNESCO Irina Bokova and Armenian Ambassador to France Vigen Chitechyan, heads of the international organizations and diplomatic representations attended the concert held at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris.
