The mugham, the classical music of Azerbaijan, holds pride of place among the oriental music for its beauty, its power of expression and its extraordinary vitality. Although this music is monodic and modal, each musician, whether singer, lute (târ) or bowed lute (kemânche) player, enjoys a great freedom of interpretation which provides its special depth. The mugham offers, at one and the same time, outstanding diversity and unity: the alternance of compositions and semi-improvisations, of free and regular rhythms, of joyful and sombre moods, is balanced by the smoothness with which all these elements are linked together without interruption.
During the late eighties, Zayid Guliev the singer, Mohled Muslimov the târ player and Fakhreddin Dadachev the kemânche player founded the Jabbâr Garyaghdu Oghlu Trio as a tribute to one of the greatest azeri masters of the beginning of the 20th century. Zayid Guliev is outstanding among his contemporaries for his supple, powerful voice with which he creates wonderful effects which recall a master of the beginning of the 20th century, Khan Shushinski.
