    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

Stop this Ship / Туктатыгыз бу корабны

Йолдызлар өлгермий чагылырга да
Дүртенче космик тизлелектә
Юл тотам Атбашы томанлыгына
Тугры йолдозара корабымда

Йолдозлар калтырыйлар, тирбәнәләр
Акылга сыймаслык Галәмдә
Очабыз чуалап гомер аркылы
Авырлыксызлык да авыр була

Туктатыгыз бу корабны
Төшеп калам
Туктатыгыз бу корабны
Өйгә кайтам.

Ләкин йолдыз давылы алып китә
Космос тузаны күзне каплый
Бармыйм дисәм дә Галәмнең читенә
Котылу чарасы табылмый

(translation)
The stars don’t get a chance to reflect on the hull
I am travelling towards the Horse Head Nebula
In my trusty star ship
At the fourth cosmic speed

The stars are trembling and winking
In this incomprehensible Universe
We continue flying onwards confused
Even the weightlessness feels heavy

Stop this ship, I am getting off
Stop this ship, I want to go home

But the cosmic wind takes us away
Stellar dust blinds the eyes
Even if we decide to not go
There is no way out of here
