Azerbaijan is rooted in various civilizations over many centuries,
which has created an atmosphere of national cultural diversity. Various
faiths and nationalities live amongst one another and embrace peace and
welfare, mutual understanding, and dialogue.

awareness and appreciation of global and multinational culture through
this event, and the concerts hosted throughout the season. The

the 100th anniversary of Azerbaijan Democratic Republic. This season,
