The concert is planned to be an uplifting event with happy folk compositions from Azerbaijan including a number of fast-paced pieces.

“In the first part of the show, Hasanov will perform solo and in the second part, I will accompany him on percussion,” Khademi said.

“Last year, Hasanov visited Iran and conducted a series of master classes in Tabriz,” capital of East Azarbaijan Province. “It was during the same visit that we recorded an album together and he brought up the idea of a joint performance with me. Now his idea is being realized,” Khademi added.

Hasanov has collaborated with other celebrated Iranians including Persian classical musician and tonbak player Pejman Hadadi, traditional musician and percussionist Pezhham Akhavass and choreographer Shahrokh Meshkinqalam.

“Joint performance with Imamyar would be an unpredictable task. I immensely enjoy the accompaniment and I’m certain that the audiences too will find the show enjoyable,” Khademi said.
