Armenia - Culture: Aram Khachaturian
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Armenia's location in east-central Asia has produced an interesting culture. Located in the greater Caucasus region, between Russia and Iran, it is right between Europe and the Middle East. The culture of Armenia has parts of both of these very different regions.
 
2     Another influence on their culture is the fact that so many other countries have ruled Armenia. At different times, Turkey, Russia, Greece, and Persia ruled Armenia. Each influenced Armenia in different ways. A good example of this is Armenian folk music.
 
3     To most people, Armenian folk music sounds like Middle Eastern music. It is played with a kanon (a stringed instrument), davul (a drum), and most importantly, the duduk, an ancient woodwind instrument. Some people say that this music is thousands of years old. Throughout history, other instruments from other parts of the world were added. Today, Armenian folk music is also performed on the clarinet or violin.
