Zuzu Zakaria and Mesak are: Ya Tosiba.

Zuzu has researched about Meykhana in her studies at Oslo university. In her fieldwork, she has found the lyrics for these two tracks. "Mollah", based on texts by Aliaga Vahid, dates back to the 1940s, it carefully criticizes the hypocrisy of the religious leaders at the time. "Maşın" has been written by Agaselim Childag in the 1980s and describes the sudden rise of cars in the streets of Baku, with everybody riding about without any need for licenses.

Mesak's trademark sounds, these raw synth bleeps in characterizing most of the Scandinavian Skweee music, are present throughout. They join hands into two bouncing beats accompanying Zuzu's enchanting vocals. "Molla" is a slow head nodder gaining more and more energy through the song, while "Maşın" is a disco track perfect for driving slowly to a summer beach with all windows open.

This is Pingipung 045
