In this musical pilgrimage, the public embarks with closed eyes, magical with the oriental accents of an oud, for a journey where the French melodies meet the poetry of Karabagh
Concert Fred Kazak

Description: Concert Fred Kazak

Fred Kazakbayli, singer of the band, was born in France. His father Ilias is an Azerbaijani from the Gandja region. During World War II, he fought under the Russian uniform before being taken prisoner by the Germans. He escaped, then took refuge in the Grenoble region. He married a French woman there at the end of the war, and founded a family there that will be marked by its Azeri origins. He will disappear before he can realize his old dream of returning home, leaving only a few pictures of his family around Gandja to his wife and children. It was this endless journey that Fred tried to translate into music and texts, since his meeting with Philippe Fontaine.

This composer and arranger is touched by this history, then conquered by Azerbaijan and its wild lands, its simple and warm people, but also by its traditions and music.
