Ara Topouzian cannot remember a time when music was not a part of his life. Born in Detroit, Michigan, he first performed live with an Armenian band at the age of 10, playing the def or (tambourine).

And, it was while performing with local Armenian bands that he first learned how to play the Kanun, a 76-stringed laptop harp. In 1991, in order to record and preserve Armenian, Arabic and other forms of traditional music, Ara founded American Recording Productions (ARP).
