Truly a citizen of the world, this talented pianist who originally hails from Azerbaijan now places her roots in Queens, New York. Still firmly committed to her own striking compositions, Figarova now importsher musicians from Europe. It usually only takes one tune for the listener to recognize the swinging music in the air.
