It sounds Eastern European/Turkish like it is close to the Stans. Last week a traveler gave me some music from Azerbaijan, and some of it I quite like. Especially a rock/rap group.
So I've checked with the CIA and this is what they have to say about Azerbaijan:
a nation with a majority-Turkic and majority-Muslim population - was briefly independent from 1918 to 1920; it regained its independence after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991
Another website gave a less rosier picture:
Azerbaizhan is a bad country in all aspects, i.e. small territory; population is low, ambitious country and lack of contact among the strong groups. For instance, a number of clans with connections, money, and power have been squeezed to Russia and others to Turkey.
Well, at least they make kinda OK music . . .
