My name is Canberk Ulaş. I am a professional duduk player. I studied in İstanbul Technical University Turkish Music Conservatory. My genre is wide covering from middle eastern, Armenian and Turkish folk music to meditative and contemporary.
I studied the duduk with great duduk masters Suren Asaduryan and Özcan Gül. I joined in Erkan Oğur’s and Derya Türkan's workshops, who are two prominent representatives of Anatolian music.
It is possible to hear both Turkish and Armenian and also Ottoman Classical Music modes and patterns in my playing style. I have contributed to many albums with my duduk through my career. I founded the band “Canberk Ulaş Quartet” in 2015 and I released my first album titled “Telafi" with this band in 2017.

Canberk is such an incredible Duduk player. We have a very spiritual and emotional song that we felt could benefit from having a Duduk solo. Canberk played exactly what we needed. 5 Stars for sure :) Plus, he's is super positive and a great communicator :) Thank you Canberk.
