Aziza Mustafa-Zadeh

My Jazz Story

Aziza Mustafa-Zadeh born in Baku, capital of Azerbaijan. Yet despite a mysterious name that could be straight out of Arabian Nights, this pianist & singer does not regard herself as the exotic product of a distant land. Since she was born, music has been an integral part of her life. Aziza's Father - Vagif Mustafa-Zadeh (1940-1979) is a legendary founder of Mugam-Jazz, composer & pianist, who played an important role in making Jazz acceptable in Soviet Union. Her Mother Eliza Mustafa-Zadeh is trained and famous singer of traditional Azerbaijani music and has rarely left her daughter's side during the constant rise of fame within last decade. Aziza Mustafa-Zadeh's music is the natural, easy fusion of two fundamental elements: Jazz, the modern sound of freedom, and Mugam, the ancient music of wisdom and love. "The Rainbow has many colors. The Soul, too, has many different shades." Unquestionably, these words can applied equally well to the Artist herself, and to the Way she views the world around her.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
