Passion for Living - Azeri Music

Betty Blair"If you really want to understand the Azerbaijani people, listen to their music. You'll detect a unique synthesis of the old with the new, of the East with the West. You'll encounter a spirit of openness, diversity, internationalism, tradition and intellectual rigor. But above all, you'll discover their passion for life. Azerbaijani music makes you want to live!"

Betty Blair, Editor of Azerbaijan International magazine, listening hours on end to Azeri music in the preparation of this issue - "Legacy of Music."
