This week, the embassy of Azerbaijan hosted an extraordinary spectacle of music and art under the auspices His Excellency Vaqif Saiqov. The cultural programs at the embassy of Azerbaijan are well-known.
Reza Deghati, a highly respected photographer, presented his program “Khojaly”. This exhibition, which focused on the Khojaly massacre in which hundreds of civilians were killed by Armenian forces in 1992, with support from Russian troops, was particularly relevant given the current conflict in Ukraine.
The backdrop of contemporary and classical music was the setting for the exhibition, a genre that Azerbaijan is particularly proud of.
Astrid Galez, flutist, was supported by Nezrin Efendiyeva, pianist, and Marie Carmen Suarez. Baku, Azerbaijan’s capital, is widely considered to be a key home base for European jazz music. Azeri music is considered to be the best in Paris, London, and New York.
Ambassador Sadigov said to EU Reporter that he loves jazz and both contemporary and classical music. It is a joy to listen and enjoy the music of Belgium, a country I love.
