Hello, and thank you for taking the time to visit!
I'm a New York-based musician hailing from Russia. I do and I play a lot of different things, and here is the place where you can hear them.
Dudukina is a vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and composer hailing from Siberia, Russia.
She has developed her passion for music since her early days, and became well known locally as a classical pianist by the age of seven. Later she attended Novosibirsk State College of Music majoring in both jazz voice and piano performance, and then followed up in the United States of America, where she became one of the few Full Tuition Scholarship recipients in Berklee College of Music. In addition to her jazz and classical studies, Inna was influenced by Eastern European and Middle Eastern music leading to experimentations in fusing those genres with modal jazz among other styles.
A Russian native, Dudukina picked up the ancient Armenian double reed instrument duduk while researching the origins of her surname, which made her one of only a handful of female musicians ever playing that instrument. As a singer, her performance technique, backed with perfect pitch and soulful playing, has garnered attention and praise from her peers, as well as specialized critics and fellow musicians. Apart from performing, Dudukina has arranged for and shared the stage with illustrious artists such as Gary Burton, Layth Sidiq, Vadim Neselovskyi, Berklee Indian Ensemble, Tigran Hamasyan, Zakir Hussain, Javier Limón among others; her audience included music legends like Jimmy Page, Julio Iglesias, and A.R. Rahman.
Hello all, I hope all's well with you (within reason), and the world is treating you nicely.
In my news this month, I'm in hiding, these few weeks are emotionaaaal... Normal services will resume next week, my old stuff is still on my Youtube channel and on my instagram - Embarrassing Wednesdays, Sunday Dudukings, me singing, the whole shebang.
I'll see you next week!
For now, here's my latest track, my version of an old Czech song "Ktož Sú Boží Bojovníci". I played there almost everything I can, so tremble in fear, please.

In this section you can hear arrangements that I wrote for orchestras, big bands, choirs, live performances, video recordings, etc. Some of them were presented at Berklee Commencement concerts for the audience including the likes of Jimmy Page and Julio Iglesias (how cool is that!), some were written for prestigious events like Berklee Singers' Showcase or Annual Middle Eastern festival, some of them were performed by the awesomeness of Gary Burton (yes, the jazz legend himself); for Internationally acclaimed Berklee Indian Ensemble, and for small jazz or world bands (like my favourite Balkan Fusion child Dashina)
