    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

Shall we Fly? / Очабыз?

Кичә күрдем Казан күгендә
Очып күтәрелде тәлинкә
Күргән бар иде кайда булса аны
Хайрән булам чыккач урамга
Цирк йортын күрмийм бер кайдада
Эз да калмаган, дуслар, бушлык бары

Син сораган идең кичә
Әзерме мин очарга бергә
Йолдозлар бик узенә тарта
Галәм күптәннан көтә

Ник бәгрем сиңа ышанмадым
Кайда инде хәзер тәлинкәң
Кайтыр микән тиздән генә әйләнеп?
Ешь ешь күзләремнән яшь тама
Кинәт барысы аңлашыла
Туган йолдозыңа киткәнсең очып!

Син сораган идең кичә
Әзерме мин очарга бергә
Юкка кире сине көтәм
Сагышлы минем Галәм

(translation)
Yesterday I spotted in the sky over Kazan
A flying saucer rising up
It reminded me of something I had seen before
When I went walking outside
I realised the circus building was nowhere to be found
Only emptiness where it once stood

You asked me darling late last night
If in the morning I would fly with you
The stars are calling from the distant skies
The Universe is waiting for our flight

Why didn’t I listen to your words
Where has the flying saucer gone
Will it come back in a hurry if I ask?
Tears keep falling from my eyes
Finally I begin to realise
To your home planet you must have returned

You asked me darling late last night
If in the morning I would fly with you
Now I am waiting for you to come back
Lonesome is my broken heart
