Gasimov's New CD
A new CD called "Love's
Deep Ocean" (title is English) has just been released this
year in Frankfurt by Network Medien featuring mugham singers
Alim Gasimov and his daughter Fargana.
Alim is Azerbaijan's foremost mugham singer and is now being
recognized throughout the world, especially Europe after being
named winner of the 1999 International IMC-UNESCO Music Prize.
This award is considered the highest accolade that any musician
can ever hope for. Previous laureates have included composers
Dimitri Shostakovich, conductors Yehudi Menuhin and Leonard Bernstein,
and performer Ravi Shankar. These past few years, Alim has been
performing in main stream concert halls in England, France, Germany
and other major European countries.
