The Duduk is a unique Armenian instrument and it’s use dates back to antiquity.
Since the middle ages, the Duduk has been hand carved from the trunk of the wild Armenian Apricot tree found in the highlands of Armenia. That tradition remains to this day.
With it’s captivatingly haunting sound, the Duduk has been used in mainstream music by such artists as Peter Gabriel and Yanni, as well as in motion pictures such as The Crow and more recently Gladiator and Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ .
The Ghamish is an integral part of the Duduk. Completely hand made from Armenian Cane, a high quality Ghamish brings out the true sound of a professional Duduk carved by a master.
From its historic beginnings, this authentic Armenian instrument has been used to capture the soul of Man and Beast alike. From the early shepherds to the current instrumentalists, the Bloul continues to bring respect and imagination to the listener’s heart.
Hand made from the wild Armenian apricot tree, the Bloul is originally a chromatic instrument, but diatonic variants are also made.
The Shvi is an Armenian flute. It is small in size and has a very high pitch and brilliant sound.
Traditionally played by shepherds, it has since found it’s way into and has been a permanent part of traditional and folkloric Armenian music. The Shvi is a diatonic instrument that is completely hand carved and can be made in numerous keys.
