The duduk and Armenian lament performed in the ancient Armenian city of Ani
Isabel Bayrakdarian (born 1974 in Zahlé, Lebanon) is a Grammy Award-nominated Armenian Canadian opera singer.
She teamed up with the Minasyan Duduk Quartet from Armenia for a special performance of the Armenian song, "Dle Yaman" a lament about losing one's homeland and loved one.
The video is filmed in Turkey and in Armenia, in places where the two countries' borders have overlapped and superseded one another. The location where they are performing is the medieval Armenian city of Ani, now almost completely in ruin. The city is located within the borders of the Republic of Turkey. It is, in my opinion, a great place to film this performance, which is full of sorrow and pain.
