How did you get started with all this??
-Well, AVA is a ‘2” pieces band, Sami and I (Artin), we met each other in a recording session and we both were session musicians, by the time I was the drummer and he was the Electric Guitar player, after a bunch of meetings,  we decided to work together, we have been working on very  different projects from producing and recording international musicians to film composing and many different things, we both play a couple instruments and also we are very good friends and it’s been more than 7 years that we are together and making music.

What's the message to transmit with your music?
-Actually we don’t transmit any specific messages, it’s all about communication and our concerns as human beings, there are a million of bands out there trying to put their lives into their music and this is not what we want, we think people and fans are more important than ourselves, we always look forward to some new stuff, everybody is tired of some repetitive tunes. They want to hear something new that challenges their mind and makes their heart beat faster. It’s obvious that all human beings need each other to get happiness , we can’t say that Crime in Asia or poverty in Africa, war in the Midlist won’t come to the west, it is unavoidable, we see them everywhere so we need to communicate and understand each other, we think Love would be the answer of everything.

What's your method at the time of writing a song??
-There is no method, we don’t even think about the Genre of our music at the start, we sit down and talk about it maybe for days and then we make it, but we are really specific about what we are making, we won’t accept anything that we are playing, it must pass too many filters and feed our taste.

Who are your music influences??
-There is no certain influences for us, people keep telling us, what they hear in our music, I mean we got inspired by so many bands from late 60’s to some new stuff that we recently heard. But it's not easy to mention them as we took the inspiration.

What plans do you have for the future??
-Touring around world all the time, we really like to do that and we started it somehow

What has been the funniest prank you have been or took part while on tour or after a show??
-....... I can’t recall anything now but generally when you are travelling a lot, you meet some amazing people that make you happy and laugh, we are so lucky to meet some cool people all the time and they make our trip so fun.

If you were stranded in the middle of nowhere after a show or while on tour. The help is 65 miles away from where you and your band (If any) are, ¿Who would you send to look for help? And if while the rest wait, there's no food and the only way to feed yourself is by eating each other, ¿Who would you eat first?
-I think Sami is faster than me, so I might send him and I’d wait but since there is no other main band members and we always work with some live members, I have to watch out that I don’t get eaten by others.

What country you would love to play?
-Mars maybe, is that count?

With what bands you would love to share stage??
Lady Baba.

Are you OK, with the direction the band is going actually?
-Artin: what do you mean by Ok? 
-Sami: All I know is the band is going we are not sure about the direction.
