Alim Qasimov Ensemble

Alim Qasimov and his daughter Fargana exemplify the explosive artistic energy that results when a powerful musical model ignites the spark of young talent. Fargana Qasimova’s talent gravitated toward the music she heard from her father: Azerbaijani classical music, known as mugham, and the repertoire of bardic songs sung by ashiqs, modern-day troubadours and singer-songwriters.


The Qasimovs are accompanied by a quartet of young musicians whose talent was shaped both by formal music education and immersion in Azerbaijani oral tradition.
