Soon after, a DVD of the memorable June 23rd Concert was released, that was by far the most professional and most compelling among other DVDs in the Armenian Music Industry yet to be surpassed.
On July 8, 2001, Sako performed at the 26th Homenetmen Western United States Navasartian Games in Los Angeles, California. More than 18,000 spectators, athletes, Homenetmen members and visitors took pleasure as Sako brought the evening to a close with a memorable performance.
On September 22, 2001, Sako made a special appearance at the Getty Center, in Los Angeles, California. He performed as a guest artist in Armenia Unbound: A Musical Journey, which opened the Gordon Getty series complementing the Getty Museums illuminated manuscripts exhibition The Armenian Gospels of Gladzor. He portrayed the remarkable sounds of traditional Armenian music combined with his stunning style to hundreds of delighted spectators. Sako's performance was described as romantic and compelling. His picture was featured in the Getty calendar for the month of September.
The following month, on October 21, 2001, Sako officially released his sixth album, Silence to a crowd of nearly 1,500 hearty fans at Tower Records in Glendale, California. The album featured the hit song, Ashoun, which remained number one everywhere for several months. Sako received 4 nominations at The Fourth Annual AMAs including: Best Dance Album, Best Music Video, Best Concert Commercial, and Peoples Choice. With another inventive video, again created by director, Koji Zadori, Sako took home a second award at The Fourth AMAs for Best Music Video.
Sako began attending sessions with one of the most respected and in-demand vocal trainers in the world, Ron Anderson. Ron is among the most prominent vocal-technique teachers in the music industry. He has worked successfully with thousands in the performing arts industry including, Korn, POD, Great White, Guns N Roses, Enrique Iglesias, Seal, Bjork, Nelly Furtado, and Creed. Ron directed Sako toward a healthier, more extensive use of his voice, while keeping the special quality that creativity and potential led to the release of his seventh album in September, 2002, Sako Club Mix. The artist worked with a different group of professionals, this time in Armenia, and created an album containing re mixes of some of his most popular songs. The merit and indisputable superiority of this album are nearly impossible to beat, let alone match. As an added bonus, Sako included a free CD of his live concert, a CD which is only attainable by purchasing the Club Mix album. The album was nominated for Best Dance Album at The Fifth Annual AMAs.
