EPISODE 12: A We World for an Imaginist: Conversations with Apo Sahagian

Meet Jerusalemite-Armenian musician and writer, Apo Sahagian of Apo and the Apostles. Apo lives in the Armenian quarter in the Old City of Jerusalem and he's an most unassuming hipster making waves in the music scene. 

 

In this conversation, we explore the complex and textured realities of identity, nationalism, religion, trauma versus healing informed policy, and groups of people exiled from their homeland. Apo considers himself an "imaginist," and boasts to have his own version of "Zionism," wishing to return to Armenia one day. 

 

 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN: 

  1. Religion is part of culture in many communities, and separating the two is a Western concept
  2. What it's like to live in Jerusalem: the good, the bad and the ugly 
  3. What it means to reclaim the word "goy"
