    I was just generally speaking... here it seemed as if you weren't that bothered.

    I think Azerbaijan should bring Sabina back with a ballad in Azeri, a bit like the Azeri/ethnic version of the 2012 entry... that would be nice.

    Actually that is my fav Azeri entry to date I must add...

    It's called an inferiority complex. Ictimai seems to think that anything below 5 is somehow reflective of the country as a whole. They don't think their domestic stuff is good enough to get the rest of Europe to like them (which is what they've been desperately trying to do over the years) so they take the easier route and pay talented people to write and choreograph their stuff for them. It's kind of sad, actually.

    Sadly that's probably the case

    Pity for all Azeri musicians who never gets a chance to show themselves to the European public...

    as far as Azeri music goes, I think it is very rich and it actually fuses extremely well with other genres and other ethnic elements.

    here is just a tiny bit of we have:

    This is an old Azeri folk song "Lachin" performed by an Israeli duo Anna RF in collaboration with an azerbaijani artist Imamyar Hasanov.



    here the collaboration between famous Norwegian choir Skruk and azerbaijani artists Brillian Dadasheva and Ilgar Muradov

    The song Landet vi Kommer Fra is based on azeri folk song "Sari Gelin"



    based on song Sensiz Olan by Galib Mammadov



    and here is a completely different direction yet no less awesome. Famous azeri singer Alim Qasimov (you may remember him as a guy who sang with Sabina Babayeva last year) together with an acclaimed South American band Altiplano. They mixed two folk songs - an azeri Endim Bulaq Basina and Cuban Son de Mayari

    I absolutely love this trek.



    and then there is this.

    this is an old song from 80s. Briliant Dadasheva sings "Bayatilar" by Eldar Mansurov (can you imagine that all music videos back in the USSR looked like this )



    this song has been remade in Turkey, Greece, Brazil, Serbia, Iran, Russia and god knows in how many more countries



    but the most famous rendition is of course this one:



    and then there is of course this. One of the most recognizable melodies from Buddha-Bar series. Sen gelmez oldun



    and this is only a fraction of what azerbaijani music is all about. Now why Ictimai is not tapping into this vast resourse I don't know. I'm just as puzzled as the next guy. But if I have to guess, I think it may have to do with the fact vast majority of the ESC audience is not into this kind of music. If you look at past winners almost all of them were of a cookie-cutter variety.

    and then there is magnificent Aziza one of the most acclaimed contemporary jazz artists in Europe. But this is so NOT Eurovision material.

    re: AZERBAIJAN 2014 - Dilara Kazimova

    and this is the most amazing case of Azeri music inspiration. An old azeri folk song Qalaliyam ("I'm from Qala") earned global fame thanks to an armenian-american singer Cathy Berberian. From wiki:

    Berberian discovered the last song "Qalalıyam",known in the suite as "Azerbaijan Love Song", on a 78 RPM record from the Azerbaijan Soviet Socialist Republic, sung in the Azerbaijani language except for one verse in Russian, which a Russian-speaking friend told her compared love to a stove. Berberian sang, purely by rote, the sounds she transcribed as best she could from that scratchy old record. She knew not one word of Azerbaijani.




    this is how it sounds in the original



    and this is how it sounds in South America
