Photographer's Note

This was shot during the opening party of a hotel. Many hotels launched in Baku during the past few years, most of them aiming for western style. But it was a pleasant to see how western standards are balanced within national traditions and folklor in this one, and so did the music flow slowly through the minds of visitors.

I played with balance a little, added some warming filter and adjusted brightness/contrast.

Well, well, just a few months ago I was quite surprised to see this photo in a local magazine. But recently when I was strolling through the wikipedia's web site I was shocked to see my musicians there. So thanks to all comments, there are not many of them however. I am very proud of this photo. :))
