 Gevorg Dabaghyan, Miniatures: Masterworks for Armenian Duduk
From the informative folder we learn that the duduk's body must be carved from the root of the apricot tree, while the reed -- called "ramish" or "yegheg" -- is ideally cut from canes growing along the banks of the Arax river.
Consequently the duduk was used for representations of Middle Eastern love poems called "ashugh." Two of the CD's tracks are taken from the legacy of Sayat Nova (1717-1795), a prominent composer of ashugh from the Armenian community in Aleppo (Northern Syria).
Another motif is the "Makam," a term derived from the Arabic "maqama." This form of narrative verse was developed by Arabic and Persian-writing poets as early as the 10th century and soon it became considered as the epitome of lyrical prose.
