    I am travelling to Azerbaijan to embark on a musical adventure, and am wondering how i should dress to best impress the upper circles of Azarbaijani politics and culture. Would an africanesque shirt go down well, or might this give the wrong impression? Must my trousers be ironed before leaving the hotel? Should i limit myself to the more conservative members of my tie colelction? Any advice would be much appreciated,
