...Horovel and Vakhenam knem are typical work-songs of the villagers. Khani vur jan im, Dzenet khahtzir ounis, Hayots akhchikner, Ser, im sirun es, Sari sirun yar, and Es me gharib blbuli pes are tender love songs, depicting the feelings and sufferings of enamoured couples.  Erzroumi shoror, Gyoumrva parer, Khazakhi, and Tuy-tuy are folk dances from different regions of Armenia.

Having kept its expressive empathy with the human soul, the douduk has now become an instrument of the world.  The soulful sound of the douduk was recently in the World Music spotlight thanks to musical artist Peter Gabriel. Gabriel has integrated the douduk into several recordings including the soundtrack to The Last Temptation of Christ. Armenian douduk master Djivan Gasparyan has also recently recorded with guitarist Michael Brooks for the Hollywood blockbuster Gladiator. I am sure we’ll hear its mellow, feminine voice in new and unexpected contexts.
