2014 | Everyone will agree that “Safe & Sound” was a global smash in the early 2010s. The dance-pop song by the famous American indie pop duo Capital Cities topped the charts not only in North America but also in Europe and elsewhere in the world. It was a breakthrough hit in Armenia, too, however, just a knew about the Armenian origin of the lead vocalist. Sebu Simonian’s first introduction to the local audience was back in 2013 when DEEM put together a series of fantastic concerts for him.
DEEM planned 3 sequential performances for the artist. The first performance took place at the Uptown Club, where Sebu was playing a DJ set.
For the next 2 performances DEEM team choose the Mezzo club and the Cafesjian Center for the Arts. Special guests of the concert were Jivan Gasparyan Jr., Narek from Bambir, and Soseh Keshishyan from Element Band (USA). No more tickets were available for 2 performances just 3 days before.
After the first successful collaboration, in 2017, Sebu delighted the Armenian audience with another amazing concert, again organized by DEEM. He performed with young talented artists such as Jivan Gasparyan Jr., Sanahin Papazian, Sam Ghushchyan and Gagach Derkhorenian. Sebu kept listeners entranced by both the biggest hits of Capital Cities and Komitas music. His profound voices filled Komitas Chamber Music House for 2 hours, receiving a standing ovation at the end of the performance.
