about

They came to Konqistador, an electronically boosted, globally enriched collaboration, as music bathed in biting distortion and trembling on the delicate edge of gut strings. The project, spearheaded by the Canadian duo of Elizabeth Graham and RSSR, can grab the hardest, grittiest industrial beats by the horns or turn around and seduce with the gentlest of gestures. Emotional and sonically complex, Suada links everything from long-lost Kenneth Anger soundtracks to Afghan poetry, from Lebanese holy women to Turkish street musicians.

We would like to acknowledge funding support from the Ontario Arts Council, an agency of the Government of Ontario.

What is this evil Olmayan Haline
Evil gotten Evil spent
Track Name: Albastru
As fii vrut sa imbatranesc, pe uscat timpul acela s-a pierdut in vechiul lac si de-as putea de ies innot si tot din no petea lickida lickida I’m air for you, because of you, of you, eu sunt de vina, de vina Sa fiu aer sa iti fiu sa fiu aer sa iti fiu sa fiu aer sa iti fiu sa fiu aer sa iti fiu

Thousand years between us, ma va chema cine stie daca ea mai stie ceva, ceva I sit and wait, I listen, I will wait ascult linistea sunt in lichid, si din lichid acum nu pot scapa, scapa, scapa Sa fiu aer sa iti fiu sa fiu aer sa iti fiu sa fiu aer sa iti fiu sa fiu aer sa iti fiu
Track Name: Suada
Hear them whispering It's past due diligence One by three her findings are Getting more extraordinary by the hour By the hour By the hour Careful Excavate It’s her last great attempt She gives the man a smile Reassuring, calculating acclimating, reconstructing All by design

They say it’s useless to start You’ll get carried away You know you better than them Just keep it alive They say it’s senseless to start You light down on this day

Tenacious laboring The heart of urgency Her greatest upheaval Turning soil carefully into gold Into gold Into gold Careful Excavate It’s her last great attempt She gives the man a smile Reassuring, calculating acclimating, reconstructing by design

They say it’s useless to start You’ll get carried away You know you better than them Just keep it alive They say it’s senseless to start You light down on this day
Track Name: Brancovan
Brancovan the granary of Stamboul Your bloodshed for our martyrdom But we fear only sound where to run what was found and we hear what we know Marmora open sea Certain you stand there Fighting for the wrong army Enraged we all rise Building our blood infantry Fear Fight Stand for sacrifice Fight Fear Run For your Life Run run run run run Bolshevik A death wish bitterness Your hiding place your wilderness But we fear only sound where to run what was found and we hear and we know and we know Marmora open your sea
Track Name: Rafqa
In this heaven Pain be your privilege Grief be their repent Saint for seven sacred matron mother Mission your ascent Take The Earth Break The Earth Hemlaya Hemlaya Sister, sister The earth she calls you Sister sister The sea before you Down she kneels Estranged, be their envy Pain to pain, embrace Saint for seven matron mother Spirit in her place Take The Earth Break The Earth Hemlaya Hemlaya Sister, sister The earth she calls you Sister sister The sea before you
Track Name: Keykubat
They come in one In fear and love Holding you down In spite of All awaiting you Can’t make a sound Then find your words Will come to you Suada leads We’ve found ground Sacred Seas Only Sound One now she’s free Dark is Light, for you A lion for a heart See, hear Running for a deer Here, now Found I have a voice It screams The lion gains a heart for fear that falls away
Track Name: O Yar Katit Darom
English Translation:

Sorrow
Either rains from your eyes
Or leaps out like daggers
From your mouth

Each in his own way
Breaks my heart
My enemy is in one way
My friend, in another

If my enemy hurts me
There's nothing I can do
Except to ask my friend
Why is he breaking my heart
