Armenian duduk “Sounds of eternity”

The duduk is an ancient Armenian wind instrument made from apricot wood. The soul of the apricot tree - this is how the name of the instrument sounds in translation. And this is symbolic. A cut down tree lives if it is turned into a musical instrument. After all, the singing soul is eternal.

This time we invite you to touch the sounds of eternity with us. Each melody will be accompanied by a beautiful video embodying the piece. “Music inspires the whole world, it gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination; and charm and gaiety to life and to everything... It can be called the embodiment of everything beautiful and everything sublime.” (Plato)
