Duduk

I got in touch with the Duduk through the movies of Sergej Paradjanov that I saw on youtube.

The movies affected me in an intuitive way and impressed me deeply through their atmosphere created by music and pictures.

Night and day I kept hearing that music in my head and it made me really want to learn to play Duduk.

I love making music with the Duduk and to teach the instrument to other people.

I studied Duduk with Ilia Mazia in Jerusalem and through many recordings of different Armenian Duduk players. In 2016 I performed my solo debut with orchestra in a German premiere of Sinfonia No.2 by Vache Sharafyan.

This year I performed at the "Im Hayastan" Festival in Armenia and became a student of the duduk master Gevorg Dabaghyan.
