During the six-day session, 24 committee members elected by the General Assembly of the 2003 UNESCO Convention discuss a number of issues that are important for the safeguarding of living heritage around the world.

Kochari is a traditional dance that is widely performed throughout Armenia during holidays, festive celebrations, family ceremonies and other social events. It is open to all participants, irrespective of age, gender or social status, reads a part of the dances entry on the UNESCO list.

According to the committee, Kochari, which is transmitted through both nonformal and formal means, provides a sense of shared identity and solidarity, contributes to the continuity of historical, cultural and ethnic memory, and fosters mutual respect among community members of all ages.

The committee has also noted that Kochari is one of the rare traditional dances whose chain of transmission has never been interrupted.

Details about the formal means of transmission, including the inclusion of a “folk song and dance” course in the curricula of schools in Armenia since 2004, educational programs in youth arts centers, increased visibility of the element through the Internet and other media outlets, and institutional initiatives, are noted in the dances description on the list.

Non-formal transmission occurs within families and through spontaneously formed dance groups, the entry states.

Below is a video entitled Kochari, traditional group dance produced by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Armenia, included in the entry for Kochari.



According to Armenias Deputy Minister of Culture Artur Poghosyan, there was an effort on the part of Azerbaijans UNESCO delegation to hinder the process of the dance’s being listed as a traditional Armenian dance, but that effort had failed.

Armenia was unanimously elected as a member of the Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of UNESCO (from the second regional groupEastern Europe) for a four-year term (2016-2020) at the sixth session of the General Assembly of the States Parties to the 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2016.
