La Vida album for sale by Armik was released Sep 25, 2015 on the Bolero label. Prolific Iranian-American guitarist Armik delivers another set of Latin-flavored originals in the romantic nuevo flamenco style with which he's come to be associated. La Vida is his second LP of 2015, following Romantic Spanish Guitar, Volume 2 and, like that release, he again blends elements of Latin jazz, rumba, and fluttering Spanish fingerstyle guitar over a bed of laid-back hand percussion and (mostly) unobtrusive synthesizer backdrops. La Vida buy CD music As with most of Armik's releases, his talent as a guitarist is uncontested, even if he rarely leaves his pseudo-new age wheelhouse, though less canned synths and a lot less digital reverb would be a welcome change. Still, fans know what to expect from any one of his releases and La Vida reliably delivers it.

New flamenco guitarist Armik displayed an interest in and passion for music while still a young child. When he was just seven years old, he pawned his watch for a classical guitar, which he hid and practiced on in the basement. Formal music lessons followed and Armik completed the Rudolph Solphege program in two years; at 12, he was a professional recording artist. While his early career focused mostly on jazz, Armik discovered the beauty and passion of flamenco while visiting and studying in Spain during the '70s. He moved to Los Angeles to pursue this new direction, playing with other artists live and in the studio. By 1994 he released his solo debut album, Rain Dancer, a critical and commercial success that he followed with 1995's Gypsy Flame. At this point, Armik's reputation as a performer and student of flamenco was such that expert Spanish luthier Pedro Maldonado created an instrument for him, the Rubia; Armik's 1996 album was recorded with and named after it. The following year saw the release of Malaga, and his fifth album, Isla del Sol, appeared in 1999, followed by Rosas del Amor in the spring of 2001. Released in 2002, Lost in Paradise showed him making a sensual and elegant album that offered a different take on his traditional flamenco. His releases have consistently reached Top Ten positions on Billboard's charts of top-selling new age music, and during the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, two tracks from Armik's recordings were played during the floor exercises to accompany gymnast Daniela Sofronie of Romania. That year, Armik released his first album on his own Bolero imprint, Romantic Dreams. Releases such as Mar de Sueños and the compilation Desires: The Romantic Collection followed.
