The epic story of the Karabakh horse

A horse inscribed in the list of intangible cultural heritage of humanity

At the crossroads of many civilisations, Azerbaijan, with its troubled past, is the home of a remarkable breed of horse. Named after its region of origin – its cradle, Karabakh – which has been under military occupation of Armenia for the last twenty years. The Karabakh horse, that very nearly disappeared under the Nagorno-Karabakh war, today has been truly revived. This is largely due to some Azerbaijan families playing an important role in saving the Karabakh horses.
On the 3rd December 2013, UNESCO, for the first time, recognised the contribution of an animal in preserving the heritage of humanity. That day, UNESCO was able to include « chovgan, a traditionnal Karabakh horse-riding game », in the List of intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in Need of Urgent Safeguarding.

Maghreb Metal – Born in Tunisia

Relegated to the backroom by the Ben Ali regime, blacklisted by a part of the population, metal owed its salvation only to the passion of a few, to its development in the underground scene alongside other non grata bands, like rap. And its diffusion by the social networks. But for metal just as for Tunisian society, the revolution is going to be long.
