The “Mugham Souls” performance by Azerbaijani and French musicians was held at YARAT Contemporary Art Centre in Baku on April 12. 
 
The event was organized by the Embassy of France to Azerbaijan together with the French Institute in Azerbaijan (IFA) within the framework of the Francophanie Week. 
 
The concert program was performed by Azerbaijani Mugham-singer, winner of the international song contests Gochag Askerov and famous French jazzman Pierre de Tregoman. The performance of the musicians was accompanied by Elnur Mikayilov (kamancha player – national music instrument), Kamran Kerimov (naghara player– music instrument), Ibrahim Babayev (tar player – national music instrument) and Vasif Huseynzade (piano-player).
 
The audience had a chance to enjoy songs from the Mugham Souls album released in Italy in 2017. 
 
Joint concert program of these musicians has already taken place before in Baku and Paris. In 2016 Pierre de Tregoman learned Mugham from Gochag Askerov. As a result of the friendly and professional joint exercises, they created a repertoire and performed in Baku. 
 
Both musicians shared their impressions with Eurasia Diary
 
Gochag Askerov: Our first concert with Pierre was held at the Mugham Center, this is our second performance at YARAT Centre. I believe that the combination of Azerbaijani Mugham with French music sounds good. We are planning to make more albums within the framework of our next projects.  We have a plan to hold a concert in the Pierre’s homeland, in France. Chez Tour will take place in Switzerland, China and several Arab countries.  
 
Pierre de Tregoman: "Mugham is a national treasure of the Azerbaijani people, to which is treated with great respect by Europe and beyond. Mugham was recognized in 2003 as one of the masterpieces and intangible heritage of mankind by UNESCO. Our main goal is to travel with this album and to show the beauty of the synthesis of Azerbaijani Mugham with French music. When we perform together with Gochag we get to know each other better. Day-by-day I’m improving my knowledge about Mugham.”
