duduk magic

"The Duduk (pronounced doo-dook) is considered the most "Armenian" of all folk instruments because of its Armenian origins and its ability to honestly express the emotions of the Armenian people. It has a 1500 year history and is native to Armenia although there are variants played in Turkey, Georgia, and Azerbaijan. The duduk reflects the passion, celebration, and suffering of Armenia. Aram Khatchadourian once said that the duduk is the only instrument that made him cry.

I don't know about Aram K but I cry easily especially to violin music.
I have to admit though that
this duduk has a very beautiful sound to it.

I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did.

Have a great day!!
