In this regard Djivan Gasparyan’s contribution is invaluable. Firstly, he modernized the duduk for the Armenian audience, as it used to, slightly said, be ignored. And then he had immense contribution in the hard job of taking it to the world arena. I should confess that due to him the duduk found its firm place among world music. Iit was a big risk, as he assumed that without the support of the Armenian side, endangering his authority, as well as peace of his own family. It’s not easy to endure someone who’s not next to the family for months, with all its implications.
