This music is lush, sensual and filled with the beauty of a heart seeking to know love. It is timeless in its intimacy and its capacity to open you to feel your own deep longing for connection. The Russian musicians adopted and loved American Jazz as a way to express their soul during a time when many freedoms were restricted. The pressure of inhibition has generated the brilliant soul touching compositions of Alexander Suhih that are being brought out in our time by Irina Azarova for all of us to remember the eternal quality of the impulse of the heart to express itself.

I first heard Irina sing this music one night in the hot springs of Esalen Institute in California. The stars glittered above us and her lovely voice reverberated above the pure mineral waters. It was an enchanting performance of music that I have not heard often. Such beautiful music! I love the slide between notes. It is like a falling and then a rescue, over and over, as in life.
Irina has mesmerizing voice, she is a charmer, enchanter,
musical siren. Her voice takes you into the world of fantasy, romanticism,
where your soul rests and rejuvenates. Her songs are lullabies that touch
something deeper inside.
In a magical way, Irina brought together some of the best Turkish Sufi musicians to record with her the beautiful folk and sacred music of Turkey. A journey to an enchanting world
Yuval Ron – My Dream Wedding & Come To Me, My Love
Listening to the song “Come To Me, My Love” by Irina Azarova, I was impressed by her beautiful voice and variety of intricate sounds. I felt vibrations in my whole body and at the same time these vibrations turned into movement of my body in a form of a spiral. This movement brought me a sense of joy and gratitude.
Victoria – Come To Me, My Love
Irina has made a very nice inspirational recording with the very best musicians! I share the same passion with her which is Turkish music. You can’t find such depth, mysticism, soulfulness in any other music but Turkish.
