  1. I have been Chingiz’ fan for many years and I enjoyed his very short friendship in Maryland when he presented an outstanding performance.
    I am sorry to hear that he has passed away last December – that is a big loss… I have been desperately looking for the music sheet of an Azeri song called “Ana” meaning mother. I have tried every possible avenue and I failed. I was sure that Chingiz could help me…

    Can someone help me?
