  1. Just a short note. To all azeri people. our culture built in a way that we can not forget or skip our holidays , traditions , music, mugham, etc. We just dont know what kind of Azeri people living in here USA.
    We just have to get to know each other ,
    We are alot here. but it sound like we are few families living here..
    Pro. musician family living in NY, not doing their work by performing to elder or younger generation. Lets boost our future opening schools, events, concerts …
    Azerbaijan, no wonder its small country, but look at the fire,
    its huge. Lets make it happen.
