tQ are proud to premier the first track from the upcoming self-produced debut LP, Aynama-Rtama, by the experimental five-piece, Alif. The first track from the album is called Holako (Hulagu), and it can be streamed above.

Using a poem by late Iraqi poet Sargon Boulus, his work is soundtracked for the first time with a rolling and frenetic energy.

The album will be accompanied with English translations of the lyrics and poems by Nariman Youssef. You can pre-order the album here and here.
