So far one of this year’s musical highlights has been the evening concert performance of Azerbaijani music with Imamyar Hasanov and Pezhham Akhavass. Hasanov plays the kamancha, a stringed instrument known for its tender and melodic sounds, and Akhavass plays percussion. The recording featured here is a traditional mugham improvisation.
Take note! Hasanov and Akhavass will perform again next Thursday, July 5 at 6 p.m.
This recording was made on June 28, 2012, at the Justin S. Morrill Performing Arts Center stage on the National Mall and is 8 minutes in duration. Enjoy!Festival Audio – Azerbaijani Music with Imamyar Hasanov and Pezhham Akhavass
