Azerbaijan National Music, Mugam
The classical music of Azerbaijan is called
mugam (more accurately spelled muğam),
and draws on the music of the Iranian-ArabTurkish maqam. It is usually a suite with
poetry and instrumental interludes. The sung
poetry sometimes includes tahrir segments,
which use a form of singing similar to
yodelling. The poetry is typically about divine
love and is most often linked to Sufi
Islam.Mugam created in ancient Iran
territory and developed in Azerbaijan
republic and Iran Azerbaijan provinces since
Safavid(The most branch of mugam which
called by bayat(like bayat-e-kurd,bayateshiraz, bayat-e-turk...)created by an
Azerbaijani tradition(Bayat which have music
talents)in different provinces of Iran like
kurdisatn, shiraz, isfahan. The most of royal
musicians in palaces of ancient Iran kings in
provinces were Bayat and there is no relation
between Persian and mugam because of
different morality and life philosophy
between Persians and ancient Iran traditions.
Azerbaijan has a wide range of music and
music styles but the most popular is rap
music. In 2011, Azerbaijan won the
Eurovision song contest by rap. In contrast to
the mugam traditions of Central Asian
countries, Azeri mugam is more free-form
and less rigid; it is often compared to the
