This video is from the concert "Music and Culture of the Land of Fire," featuring master Azerbaijani musician, Imamyar Hasanov, and the students of Stanford music course MUS187. "Azerbaijani Music and Culture" course was launched in the Spring of 2013 at Stanford University as a partnership between the Music Department of the Stanford University and the San Francisco World Music Festival.
It is the first course in the history of Stanford fully dedicated to Azerbaijani music and culture. Guided by the course's instructor, outstanding Kamancha master, Imamyar Hasanov, and course's co-instructor music specialist Krystal Barghelame students from various departments and backgrounds performed Azerbaijani Mughams "Chahargah" and "Heyrati" as well as Azerbaijani folk songs "Gubanin agh almasi", "Sari Gelin" and "Lachin", playing Tar, Gaval, Ud, Piano and other musical instruments. During the course, the students learned much about Azerbaijani culture, especially its rich musical culture, and the practical and theoretical aspects of Azerbaijani Mughams.
For this final project for the course, the students had the opportunity to play Azerbaijani music on their own instruments and traditional Azerbaijani instruments specifically brought from Azerbaijan for this course. The students engaged in an interactive, innovative learning experience, incorporating Azerbaijani music, jazz, poetry, and videos of Stanford students and masters from Azerbaijan performing-a trademark touch of the San Francisco World Music Festival's producing model.
