    On Dec 15, 2014 Tanegasima Space Centre Radio telescope began receiving unusual music signals from space. "It was unbelievable: An all-consuming female voice singing in an unknown language" - wrote the head of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency Mikoto Shimazu. Later, users of the popular blogging service Reddit found out that this was Tatar language pertaining to the Volga-Kipchak group of Turkic languages. Recording rapidly spread online. Soon favorable reviews appeared in the music blogosphere. The critics agreed: “The alchemy of Tatar “epic” and “modal” elements and cosmic and electronic pathos, results in elegant and romantic stream of music which shift the pentatonic paradigm towards new horizon, creating an imaginary system of a “parallel worlds” with its own utopian ideals”. Later it was discovered that this was the voice of Tataeli, the daughter of Aelita, queen of Mars and the first Tatar space explorer Ilgizar Zinnatullin.

lyrics

A Message to the Sentient Beings of the Universe
Жирдән читтәге цивилизацияләргә мөрәҗәгать

Җир кызының тавышы бу
Ул үзен "мин" дип атый,
Башкалар кебек кыю ул алданган һәм хыялый
Башкалар күк аерым дип исәпли ул үз үзен
Көтмәгәндә бер кечкенә мизгел аңлата барысын

Мөгаен сез очрашмасыз, әммә сез - бер ук мәтдә
Бөтән галәм һәм яшәеш бу кызның йөрәгендә

(translation)
This is the voice of a female being from the planet Earth
Who refers to herself as I
Like others on this planet she thinks she is alone
And disconnected from everything
Like others she is brave, romantic and deluded
But sometimes there are small moments of understanding

Perhaps you will never meet but you and her are one
The whole universe and existence are in her heart
