An Armenian duduk festival was held in the Russian capital city Moscow for the first time, and the best duduk players of Russia participated at the event.
The festival will become an annual event, and next year it will have the status of an international festival.
Valery Nam, who is Korean, also plays the duduk. But he noted that he does not play Armenian music on principle.
“An ethnic Armenian must perform Armenian music filled with blood and tears; this is more genuine, more correct. If I were to play it, this would be disrespectful on my part,” he noted.
The NTD Company has presented the festival’s video, which is posted above.
