Galstyan Vahan (Armenia), duduk | Lefteris Chavoutsas, guitar
Galstyan Vahan was born and raised in Armenia, where he studied traditional music. He has been living in Greece since 1993. Vahan is a distinguished duduk soloist, which is considered to be a very demanding instrument. Last March, he released “ZROUITIS”, meaning dialogue, from his collaboration with guitarist and oud player Lefteris Chavoutsas. Chavoutsas – who is to a large extent a self-taught musician – has worked extensively with traditional Armenian and eastern music. “ZROUITIS” is an authentic and careful tribute to Armenian music throughout the centuries. In tonight’s concert, they will perform tracks from that album.
