Arshaluys

Khatchadour Khatchadourian & Robert Kudrna

We have combined the ancient Armenian double reed woodwind, the Duduk, with the contemporary singing crystal bowls to produce unique music. As musicians, we let them interplay and produce melodies we found to be mysterious, yet quite natural. The Duduks and singing bowls seem made for each other.

Released on March 14, 2011
