Duduk and Piano: The Sounds of Magic

Published June 27, 2022

Dudukhouse presents Duduk and Piano: Sounds of Magic show to be held on July 8 at 8:00PM at Small World Music Centre in Toronto, Ontario. Tickets can be purchase via this link.

Café Duduk is a musical adventure that was inspired by a love for Armenian duduk music. Duduk player Sar Kamler and pianist Viktor Kott combine their talents to present enchanting sounds of duduk and piano in this romantic July evening.

Viktor Kott (Viktor Kotov) is a professional musician who is always on the move and looking for new ideas. Professionally trained as a pianist in Kharkov, Ukraine, Victor immigrated to Canada in 2003 where he also mastered a variety of other instruments, such as the duduk, melodica, Irish flute, and jaw harp (khomus). Viktor is an accomplished pianist and composer in addition to his many other talents. He recorded and produced two solo albums containing his original compositions, You & Me (2014) and Unconditional Love (2015).

A true believer that music has the capacity to heal the mind, body, and soul, Sar Kamler (Armen Matosyan) is a Toronto-based musician whose sound pivots around the duduk, a double-reeded woodwind instrument native to Armenia. It’s through a deep understanding of the duduk that Sar now centres his music around the themes of love, believing that a lot of light can be brought into our world through his idyllic style of music.

This is Café Duduk’s first live concert following their debut album release “Live at Number 9”.
