    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.

the second dream


Tataeli’s Dream / Татаэли төше

Бала чактан ук күрдем
Тоннә гәҗәп төшләр мин
Яшел таулар, саф җилләр,
Ак болыт

Башка тормыш турында
Бездә борынгы хәтер бар
Уянган орлык күк ул
Чыга шытып

Ә күк улы миңа әйтте
Җирдә шундый белем бар
Ул зирәклектән дә югары
Мөһәббәт томаны белән
Ул җир уратып алынган
Аны белгән кешеләр була -

Күтәр мине, алып кит
Монда кала алмыйм мин
Өметсез, күңелсез киләчәк
Улем улем һәр кайда
Кояш та елытмый инде
Ком бураннары оча
Сәхрә буйлап

From early childhood I dreamt strange dreams
Of green mountains, soft breezes and white clouds
In our lands we have an ancient memory of this other world
Like a germinated seed it rises up

The son of the skies told me
That the Earth has sacred knowledge
That’s even higher than wisdom
The Earth is enshrouded by the haze of love like a mantle
Those who have known it are eternal

Please lift me up
Take me away
I can’t remain here any longer
The future is hopeless and joyless
Death is everywhere
Even the sun isn’t warm
Only sand storms blow all over the desert
