The duduk (դուդուկ)
The duduk is probably my favorite instrument in the world. Its sound is unlike anything I've ever heard before, and it is very special to the Armenian people (considered to be the national instrument of Armenia). It is often described as the being the saddest instrument in the world because of its unique sound. You can hear the duduk beginning around 1:10. Trust me, you will know it when you hear it! I will be creating cards in this collection all about the duduk. Hope you enjoy!

@gabyrich @peteryang292 its actually an Armenian church hymn, one of the most popular and recognizable amongst Armenians. It's called "Der Voghormia" which means "Lord have mercy" (roughly). It's become a very meaningful song to the Armenian people because of a long history of tragedy and hardship

yes thank you @cityofkyle sounds like there is a lot of history behind this instrument and the Armenians. I'm admittedly not very familiar with it
