The repertoire includes classical Mughams, but also Tesnifs (classical songs) and folksongs. The result is a very passionate and intense recording that fully shows the power and the subtleties of Azerbaijani classical music.
Gochag Askarov is at the forefront of toda's generation of Azerbaijani mugham singers, a position that can only be achieved through immense dedication to the art. Still in his early 30s, the expressive and brilliant virtuosity of his voice betray a maturity way beyond his years. With a range of nearly three octaves, his voice has a special quality of subtle intensity, moving the listener with its deep melancholy. His voice is often compared to that of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, the late Pakistani qawwali singer.
