ABOUT ME

I am an Armenian musician that plays the Armenian woodwind called "duduk". I have learned the art of duduk from my grandfather and master world known musician Jivan Gasparyan. I have been playing for 20 years and collaborated with many great musicians, bands, orchestras from different cultures and styles. My collaborations with Jivan Gasparyan, Zucchero, Alan Parson, Larry Klein, Madeline Peroux, Sebu Simonian, London Philarmonic Orchestra, Armenian Youth State Orchestra, Serj Tankian, Andreas Voleinweider and with many more world known artists.I have won three important competitions. One in New York as a young musician that keeps and continues the tradition of duduk, one in Armenia as a best duduk player until my age, UNESCO special prize in Samarkand. I play duduk,zurna,recorder(shvi). Also I compose music and have two solo albums. Always looking for good ideas and collaborations. Jivanduduk.com is my web to check out more.

L'addio di Anna show Cast List
“L’addio di Anna” is a nostalgic franco-italian stylized melody of a cinematic/theatric nature - somehow the love and bright sadness are always there :-). The three main melody players however are far from this places geographically - clarinet ,played by brilliant musician of Iranian origins , duduk from Armenia and harmonica (melodica) … maybe this one the closest - Russian Federation. All of them playing the melody and improvising in a very touching and convincing way - even though our languages and cultures are different - our feelings are of the same nature. It’s fully expressed here and I am sure you will love it.
