1 - Qatre (قطره) 
2 - Navazesh (نوازش) 
3 - Daste Ma (دست ما) 
4 - Shur (شور) 
5 - Gozasht (گذشت) 


Drops of salt graced our hands, as they forgot the music of the world. 
Everything lost, everything past, and our hands found themselves, screaming. 
In the depths of the ocean, where music ceased, those drops of salt, tears filled with passion, held all the weight of sound. 

قطره های شور دستان ما را نوازش کرد 
در عمق دریا موسیقی دنیا را فراموش کرد 
گذشت و گذشت و دستان ما شکایت کردند 
این قطرهای‌ شور تمام موسیقی را 
به دوش گرفتند

Supported by Trinity Laban Consertaoire of Music and Dance, Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre & Into the Ocean
