Ruptures had the pleasure of welcoming Lebanese musician and producer Miran Gurunian in the studios of Radio Lebanon, last February.

What was initially intended as a promotional show for the launch of his band Pindoll’s first album, Twisted Times, turned into an informative, one-hour interview and career retrospective covering various aspects of Gurunian’s work and music production of the last 10 years.
