Aram Khachaturian, born on June 6, 1903, in Tiflis (now Tbilisi), Georgia, was a prominent Soviet-Armenian composer of the 20th century. Renowned for his rich and vibrant compositions, Khachaturian's music is characterized by its fusion of Armenian folk elements with classical and contemporary influences. Khachaturian's early life was marked by the diverse cultural influences of the Caucasus region. Raised in a multicultural environment, he was exposed to the music, dance, and traditions of various ethnic groups, especially the vibrant sounds of Armenian folk music. This early exposure left an indelible mark on his artistic sensibilities.
