Up to now the only recognized roles for women in the Afro-American music of the last century have been as singers. Yet despite a mysterious name that could be straight out of Arabian Nights, this pianist and 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. Though she first sang in public at the age of three-and-a-half, it was a piano concert, which actually brought the turning point in her life. When she was fourteen, she gave up ballet, ice-skating and painting overnight and put all her energie into the piano.


Aziza Mustafa Zadeh

Vagif was a pianist and composer, famous for creating the mugam-jazz fusion in which his daughter now plays. Elza is a classically trained singer from Georgia. Aziza's parents first noticed their daughter's sensitivity to music when she was eight months old. Aziza recalls the story [3] as her mother tells it:. Once, my father was improvising at the piano playing in the mugam mode known as 'Shur', which creates a mood that evokes very deep, sad emotions. As my father was playing, I started to cry. Everyone wondered what was happening to me.
