The track consists of the string instrument horsehair qopuz, with its strings made of original horsehair, which is seen in the epics of Dede Korkut and considered to be the ancestor of the modern violin. Sultanbekov plays dombra, Yerzhan Arkabayev plays horsehair qopuz, Eyüp Hamis plays ney, Damir Yakubov plays classical guitar, Selim Boyacı plays oud and Mustafa İşleyen plays percussion.
