GGA, Duduk Master

While the accompaniment figures come from Prelude, the melody is wholly original to this theme. First stated on a lonely duduk, and then in octaves by the violins and violas, it is a melancholy and contemplative tune.

The history of the Armenian duduk goes back to more than 3000 years and makes it one of the first known musical instruments of mankind.

The duduk harmoniously combines elements of fire, water and earth: the heat of the sun and the warmth of stones imbue the apricot tree, reed is born in the water giving a flowing and longing sound to the mouthpiece.

Now add the antiquity and depth of this Land and you will get Duduk

– manifestation of the Armenian soul.

For many years, the family brand GGA has been responsibly continuing the tradition of making duduk and other folk wind instruments.

Every stage of giving birth to a new instrument is approached with a great love, attention to details and many years of experience from a skillful selection of material to the final tuning and testing of the finished instruments by talented musicians.

With gratitude for your choice and wishing you success in mastering this wonderful instrument
