A Night of Armenian Duduk Music and Middle Eastern Poetry

September 1 at 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join the UNC Center for the Middle East & Islamic Studies and Department of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies for a night of music and poetry as guest musician from Beirut, Raffi Chilingirian, will play the Armenian duduk (wind instrument) while our faculty will read Arabic, Turkish, and Persian poetry. After the music and poetry performance, a panel will discuss the significance of duduk for Armenian heritage and the diaspora, the ways that dudk has traveled to other countries in the Middle East, and how music and poetry serve as great means of crossing boarders and bridging cultures.

Reception with light refreshments to follow the concert. Parking for $1 is available at the McCauley Deck starting at 5 p.m.

For questions, please contact Dr. Claudia Yaghoobi.
