The concert evening was packed with not only music performances but also congratulatory video messages from friends.

"He is a Yerevan brand, he is a Yerevan visitor, he is a Yerevan code ... when you say, Levon Malkhasyan, everything immediately becomes Yerevan ...," - Michael Poghosyan said, congratulating his longtime friend.

Levon Malkhasyan is at an age when he has his own style. His playing is full of lyricism, and most importantly for the jazzman, he feels the swing, a sharp transition from one note to another.

Armen Hyusnunts confesses that Levon Malkhasyan is the unique man whose existence and contact with him was at a crucial junior age when he had to choose my profession.

What is Yerevan, if not the people, all of us… and Malkhas' presence gives Yerevan a unique tone when it comes to playing and smiling, and Yerevan is smiling in response to Malkhas, say its friends.
