ORGANIZER: Consulate General of Azerbaijan in Los Angeles

BACKGROUND: This concert is dedicated to the 95th anniversary of the first diplomatic encounter that took place between Azerbaijan and the United States. On May 28, 1919 the President of the U.S. Woodrow Wilson met with a high-ranking delegation of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic (ADR) on the sidelines of the Paris Peace Conference. The delegation was being led by Alimardan Topchubashov, Speaker of Azerbaijan’s Parliament. Established in 1918 and being the first secular parliamentary democracy in the entire Muslim world, the ADR was ahead of its time in many ways. It extended equal voting rights to womenmuch before many developed countries in the West, founded the first European-type university in Azerbaijan, as well as enacted many other progressive reforms. Recalling his meeting with Azerbaijani diplomats in a speech delivered in California the same year, President Wilson said: “One day there came in a very dignified and interesting group of gentlemen from Azerbaijan. I was talking to men who talked the same language that I did in respect of ideals, in respect of conceptions of liberty, right and justice.”
