“Jangi” captivated the audience with a splendid mix of Azerbaijani Mugham and jazz.

About 800 music lovers attended the closing day of the 10th jubilee festival at the Palace of Peace and Harmony in Astana on 7 June which brought together music bands from the U.S., Germany, Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan.
