( quanun ) Husnu Senlenderici ( clarinet ) and Ismail Tuncbilek ( baglama).

After the Taksim Trio members agreed to the collaboration, Hosam Hayek came to istanbul İstanbul to record to to the album. Another turkish musician featured on the record is cellist Özer Arkun, who accompanied Hosam on the inventive cover of "Hungarian Dance".

The record, born in Palestine and completed in İstanbul, a melancholy air sweeps over the melodies, reflected further in the track titles as , Mirage, Stranger in my Homeland , and Grief.
