      Duduk is a reed wind instrument especially popular among the peoples of the Caucasus, the Middle East and the Balkan Peninsula. In 2005 the UNESCO recognized the Armenian duduk music to be a masterpiece. The history of this ancient music instrument totals over 3000 years. 

      One of the most famous dudukists is the musician and composer Djivan Gasparyan Sr., who introduced the world to the Armenian folk music. He composed music to the Hollywood film The Gladiator, which gained him the Gold Globe in 2001.
