Aşıq Hoseyn Javan, born in Oti Kandi, is the legendary Ashik who was exiled to Soviet Union for composing revolutionary songs during the brief reign of Azerbaijan People's Government following World War II. Hoseyn Javan's music, in contrast to the contemporary poetry in Iran, emphasizes on realism and highlights the beauties of real life. One of Hoseyn's songs, with the title "Kimin olacaqsan yari, bəxtəvər?", is among the most famous Ashugh songs.
