Born in Tbilisi, Nargil? Mehtiyeva aka A??q Nargil? has been playing saz (long-neck lute) and singing since the age of 15.

Fluent in Azerbaijani, Georgian, and Russian, Nargil? represents the cosmopolitan heritage of old Tbilisi, a city once known as a meeting point for multilingual a??q bards who would travel through the region serving as conduits for news, ideas, music and culture.

Nargil? is currently the only female a??q living and performing in the ethnic Azeri region of Georgia, and has been teaching the art to new generations.This is a recording of A??q Nargil?'s first concert in the UK.

Recorded live at Cafe Oto on the 18th October 2014 by James Dunn. The pieces performed are named after the traditional saz a??q havas? (melodies) they are based on.

Lyrics are taken from destan epics, regional poetry and Nargile's own lyrics to match the rhyming patterns of these melodies.

Yan?q Kerem (1) and Ruhani (7) are both instrumental pieces which depict their own stories without words.

Ay Ceyran?m (5) is a popular song performed at weddings across Azerbaijan.A??q Nargil? Mehtiyeva: Saz (long-necked lute) and Söz (vocals)
