Watch out for more music for the duduk (a reed instrument indigenous to Armenia) than you can shake a stick at!  We'll hear from the Gurdjieff Folk Instruments Ensemble, along with music from Andrew Cronshaw's latest cross-cultural collaboration (Armenian & British), "The Unbroken Surface of Snow," at times an unlikely combination of zither and duduk.

There's also traditional Georgian music in choral arrangements and in a solo clarinet version by Evan Ziporyn.  Plus, music from the Greek singer Savina Yannatou and her band, in Armenian.
