International Duduk Festival to be Held in Moscow

The 2nd International Moscow Duduk Festival will be held in the Variety Theater on September 27. 

      Duduk stars from Armenia and Russia will take part in the festival.

      Among the performers there will be Djivan Gasparyan Sr. and Djivan Gasparyan Jr., Gevorg Dabagyan, Georgy Minasov, Martin Kazaryan, Gagik Malkhasyan, the Dudukist ensemble, and many others. More than 20 musicians altogether will take the stage of the Variety Theater.

      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.
