The duduk repertoire consists of folk ballads as well as upbeat dance music. Composers have even written orchestral pieces for it. The Duduk Quintet of the Armenian Woodwind Instrument Ensemble is unique in its kind. Its members all hail from state-sponsored orchestras or acclaimed ensembles of popular music in Armenia; as expatriates, they have come together locally in Los Angeles to keep the duduk tradition alive in the Diaspora as well. The band is also singular in featuring a bass duduk a one-of-a-kind instrument which came into being only twenty years ago.
The Duduk Quintet of the Armenian Woodwind Instrument Ensemble presents a nice collection of patriotic songs in performance of duduk and other national instruments. It is invariably played with the accompaniment of a second "dum" duduk.
