Vahagn Stepanyan – Moonlight

Armenian born keyboardist Vahagn Stepanyan follows the call of smooth jazz. After his study at the Yerevan Komitas State Conservatory he toured in some States in America having the opportunity to perform with Eric Marienthal, Nathan East, Don Moen, Greg Adams, Melvin Lee Davis and more.
