Turkmenistan

  • Wandering without a penny in the streets of Ashgabat, the weird turkmen capital, i have been taken in for the night by a family of azerbaijani musicians. They showed me their virtuosity  not only in azerbaijani music but also in french music; on this video one of the sons is playing the garmon, traditionnal accordion of the Caucasus.
    Recorded in Ashgabat, november 2014.

  • In the home of the azerbaijani musicians. This tune is a folk song, “Bagda Gul” (“the flower in the garden”), which is used to be played for dancing the national dance of Azerbaijan.
    Recorded in Ashgabat, november 2014.
