With the initiative and support of the leading mobile operator one of our nation’s favorite folk arts piece now available in Bookmate app in the narration of blogger Azer Garib.

Azercell Telecom LLC has initiated yet another project aimed at the preservation of the cultural heritage of our people, bringing the pieces of both written and oral folk literature to readers in a more modern and dynamic way. The project envisages the presentation of "Koroglu", the epic which embodies the history of patriotism and heroism of our people, to book lovers in a different and digital format. The epic story developed in audio format will be uploaded to the Audiobook section of Azercell's Bookmate mobile app. Thus, 10 chapters of "Koroglu" epos were recited by well-known journalist, travel-blogger Azer Garib, while some verses were performed by young composer and folk-rock performer Vusal Rzasoy with exclusive compositions. In addition, young artists Bakhtiyar Zaidzadeh and Zahra Azimzadeh worked on the illustrations for the audio book "Koroglu". An exclusive presentation of the project will take place on February, 21 on the official Facebook page of blogger Azer Garib. The project will be also available in Azercell official Youtube channel.

Notably, Azercell is the official representative of the Bookmate mobile app in Azerbaijan. Bookmate is a rich digital library with over 4 million e-books and audio books in various genres, allowing access even offline, regardless of location and device used. Azercell, from the year of its establishment, aims to enrich the content of the mobile library in Azerbaijani language. So far, dozens of works have been uploaded to the app in electronic and audio book versions at the initiative of Azercell. To cite an example, famous ghazals and rubais of Imadeddin Nasimi were narrated in three languages and uploaded to the Audio Book section of the Bookmate program on the 650th anniversary of the prominent poet.
