DUDUK AND NATIONAL IDENTITY IN ARMENIA
by Andy Nercessian
The Duduk and National Identity in Armenia outlines the duduk, a cylindrical double-reed aerophone made of apricot wood, and its relationship to Armenian culture. Nercessian attempts to deepen our understanding of musical instruments not only through an examination of musical and constructional features but also through the application of a sociocultural framework. This book will appeal to anyone with an interest in organological theory, Armenian culture, or world music.
