    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.

Black Hole / Кара тишек

Вакыт туктады. Биредә вакыт юк диләр
Бу чит төшенчәне уйлап тапканнар кешеләр

Кара тишек безне тарта,
Вакыт офыгына суыра

Яктылык тизлеге акрын
Карангы мәтдә җиңеп чыга

Кара тишек
Тарта мине

Күктәге җисемнәр шундый күңелсез, йөрәксез,
Шартлый, мәнгегә югала, салкын утә-яңа ак йолдыз

Бәлки бу кара тишекнең эче аркылы без үтәлсәк
Хичтә ул кара тугел дер, искиткич якты ул һәм аппак

Time has stopped. There is no time here.
They say it’s a concept invented by humans

The black hole draws us in
On the event horizon it swallows

Even light speed isn’t fast enough
The dark matter overcomes

Celestial bodies have no heart
The super nova blows apart

But maybe if we can get through to the other side
There is no darkness there - only light
