Dear Grace Slick,
For more than 40 years your music and voice have given me great joy and at times even solace. On the occasion of your 70th birthday I want to give you a virtual musical present in return. Two albums of "Mugam", the traditional music of Azerbaidjan:
-"Gozlarim Yol Gakanda" by Rubaba Muradova
-"Mugam d' Azerbaidjan" by Haji Baba Huseynov
I know that Spanish music with its Eastern, Moorish influence has always been a great inspiration to you. When I heard "Mugam" for the first time I was struck by its beauty, that moved me deeply. But, surprisingly,I also noticed that your music resembled "Mugam" in certain ways. Not only in the Eastern vocal style, but in its fierce, intense emotion too.
I think you will like this music.
