Duchin sang in the rock band HaChaverim Shel Natasha (The Friends of Natasha). The band, which he formed in 1986 with Micha Shitrit, made five albums, including the 1994 album Radio Blah Blah, before its breakup in 1996. Dudu Fisher, David D'Or, Eran Zur, and Meir Banai joined in the song "Lisa" on "Radio Blah-Blah".
After 9/11 Duchin and Etti Ankri, Zehava Ben, David D'Or, and other Israeli singers recorded the title song "Yesh Od Tikvah" ("Our Hope Endures"), for which D'Or wrote the music and lyrics, on the CD Yesh Od Tikvah/You've Got a Friend. The CD, released by Hed Arzi in 2002, benefitted Israeli terror victims, with all proceeds going to "NATAL": the "Israel Trauma Center for Victims of Terror and War".
In 2004, Duchin opened a restaurant on Frishman Street in Tel Aviv, which closed a year later. He hosted a cooking show on Israel's Russian language television channel in which Israeli singers were invited to cook a meal.
In 2009, Duchin released a children's album, Friends of Arkasha.
Duchin is married to Sima, and has a daughter. He lives in Givatayim.
