Salman Gambarov in Istanbul

Salman Gambarov (born 1959) ranks amongst the most inspired and experienced Azerbaijani jazz pianists. In 2014, TEAS Istanbul collaborated with IKSV to bring him and his handpicked selection of musicians together to perform at the closing night of the Istanbul Jazz Festival. In this video, he speaks about his art, the festival and his relationship with other musicians, complemented by stunning concert footage, performed before over 750 transfixed jazz aficionados. The band also included Yildiz Ibrahimova (vocals), Şenova Ülker (trumpet), Önder Focan (guitar), Fatih Ahiskali (oud) and Ferit Odman (drums).
