The Musée d'ethnographie de Genève (MEG) included in its permanent exposition Armenian legendary Duduk, a musical instrument inscribed on the UNESCO intangible heritage list.
On March 23, 2023, during the solemn ceremony at the Museum, Ambassador Andranik Hovhannisyan handed over Duduks to the Museum.
He thanked the management of the Museum and said in particular that "some Armenians refer to Duduk as a reflection of the Armenian soul, they claim that duduk is not just another musical instrument, but the one that speaks to us, speaks in Armenian language."
A brief Duduk performance and an introduction on its history and Armenian musical traditions followed.
Representatives of the Armenian community of Geneva participated at the event.
