Umsiyat 2019: Mugham Soul




Date & Time

8:00 PM to 11:00 PM


Umm Al Emarat Park




Mugham Soul is an exceptional encounter between two voices from different cultures watered from the same spring. It presents a unique mix of Jazz and Mugham that has been travelling around the world and is now coming to the UAE.

When French jazzman Pierre de Trégomain discovered Gochag Askarov’s album Mugham: Traditional Music of Azerbaidjan (Felmay Records), he decided to go to Baku in February 2016 to learn Mugham from him. The musical encounter was so impactful and creative that both singers decided to start a trans-cultural collaboration: they gathered together the most talented musicians of their generation and created an unprecedented repertoire of traditional Mugham, original compositions and improvisations. They recorded their collection in November 2016 at the prestigious Mugham Centre in Baku, under the cameras of the national television body, ATV. Their live album was released through Italian Label Felmay Records in November 2017. For their first appearance in the region, they will perform at the Umsiyat Festival and contribute to its spirit of mixing musical traditions and genres and finding new and innovative musical languages.
