Hi. I’m Canberk, a musician with a deep respect for the intertwining narratives of different cultures. Born amidst the complexities of Armenian and Turkish relations, I am a Turkish duduk player based in Sweden, passionately preserving the Armenian techniques.

In my artistic expression, I blend the heritages of Armenian, Ottoman, Turkish, and Anatolian traditions with a contemporary perspective, echoing the diverse essence of Istanbul. My pursuit of authenticity encompasses the exploration of extended techniques and the use of electronic treatments. These elements are integral to my journey, allowing me to push the boundaries of the duduk and explore new realms of sound and expression.

During my enriching time in Istanbul, while pursuing my studies in Turkish music at Istanbul Technical University, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to meet and learn from esteemed duduk masters Suren Asaduryan and Özcan Gül. Their guidance was instrumental in shaping my perspective on the duduk.

Furthering my education, I had my master’s degree at the University of Agder and the University of Gothenburg, I was honored to study under some of Scandinavia’s most distinguished musicians. Mentors like Jan Bang, Bugge Wesseltoft, Anders Jormin, and Arve Henriksen generously shared their expertise and insights, deeply enriching my musical identity and the way to be a solo artist and a curious collaborator.
