Mugham music is a traditional genre of music that originated in Azerbaijan and has deep roots in Persian culture. It is a complex and intricate form of music that is characterized by its emotional depth, improvisational nature, and intricate melodic patterns.

Mugham music is typically performed by a singer, known as a mugham singer, accompanied by musicians playing traditional instruments such as the tar, kamancheh, and balaban. The music is based on a series of scales, known as mughams, which serve as the foundation for the melodic improvisations and vocal ornamentations that are central to the genre.
