PLEASE CHANGE HIS NAME TO THE CORRECT VERSION OF QASIMOV —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.178.65.225 (talk) 16:32, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

I'm going to do just that.Sillyfolkboy (talk) 10:51, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

Film[edit]

Is he the same Alim Gasimov listed as the singer of the songs in the credits of the Sergei Paradjanov film Ashik Kerib (1988)? Badagnani 07:34, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

One of the other wikipedia pages from another language seems to suggest so but with all the research I've done I haven't heard any mention of him being in any films. However, one of the difficulties I had in expanding this piece was that other sources probably exist but they are in a language or script I can't understand; English and French was as far as I could go.

Mugham?[edit]

Is it correct to say that Mugham is the music of the Caucasus? I don't believe it's the music of Armenia or Georgia, two countries that are typically included in the Caucasus. Does it extend north into Daghestan and Chechnya, or is it more correct to say that it's the music of Azerbaijan? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 141.211.98.33 (talk) 18:03, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

COPYRIGHT Violation[edit]

It appears the article is derived from this. I began updating the article before i knew this (found site when searching for sources) and a complete rewrite is in order. I shall look to fix the article shortly. Sillyfolkboy (talk) 14:48, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

  • I've removed the copied text and will seek to rewrite it using the original source of the text as a reference. Please do not restore the old version as it is a copyright violation. Thank you. Sillyfolkboy (talk) 13:04, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Where does he live?[edit]

Doesn't he live in New York City? Badagnani (talk) 04:13, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Initial comments[edit]

  • The major concern here is the lead section. It is disorganised and missing a lot of content - the lead has to act as a "mini article" and summarise the whole article. In its current standing it is not doing that and the latter two paragraphs should be merged, while a third one describing more of the article should be created.
  • "He joined fellow Azerbaijani, Sabina Babayeva" - remove the comma
  • "to sing back vocals for her entry" - sing back vocals??
  • "a village 100 km north of the capital Baku" - convert to miles too using the template
  • Some of the early life has a musk of original research. For example "Qasimov's father was an occasional singer with a good voice but he was a humble man; he never pursued a professional career in singing"
  • Early life: "The form proved difficult for him at times: once, while performing in a local music contest at the age of fourteen, the audience —thinking he did not grasp the correct traditional style—laughed him off the stage" - needs copyediting, also what is "the form"?
  • "He had realised that music" - per WP:ENGVAR, some words in this article uses American Spelling
  • The last sentence in the Musical career section should be merged to something else, to increase flow (same with the "2000 to present" section)
  • The personal life section is too short, I'd recommend deleting it, expanding it or merging it somehow
  • Influence and legacy section is very small, surely he has a bigger legacy than this? Can it be expanded?

On hold[edit]

The major concern here is the lead section; it needs to summarise the whole article as it is missing a lot of content. Also, another paragraph could easily be added. I'd remove the quote and the citation from the lead too. Also, I suspect that some original research is in this article as some sentences sound encyclopaedic. I know that the nominator is blocked so I'm going to ask around and find out if anyone will tackle this review, so I'll leave this on hold for seven days. If nothing, I'll have to close it by the deadline. Jaguar 20:08, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

Close - not listed[edit]

It's been over seven days and nothing has been done. Feel free to renominate this. Demoted article Jaguar 15:36, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
