Mirror

  • The critically-acclaimed second release from performer-composer Thomas blends elements of Balkan, Arabic, Hindustani, West African, Pop-Soul and Classical styles with cinematic arrangements and emotive power to create a new genre called World Chamber Pop. 

    “Mirror” explores duality and shadow psychology in the quest for integration of the true self, interlacing diverse threads of culture through a rhythmic, poignant examination into the human condition.

    The project features a ten-piece microtonal chamber ensemble including string quartet, drums, double bass, oud, qanun, synth / piano, percussion, and voice.

  • World, Chamber pop, classical, pop, fusion, world fusion
  • Come to me, my mirror
    Show me your shadow
    Hiding deep in there
    Don’t be scared to grow

    Into the tree
    Made of oak
    With outstretched leaves
    And rings to hold
    Into the moon
    Oh and how she’ll grow
    If she would only
    Stop fighting for

    The sun
    To shine
    All of the time
    The sun
    To Shine
    All of the time

    Come to me, my child
    I can help you heal
    All the wounds of old
    You can finally feel

    The salty breeze
    On your naked bones
    With outstretched arms
    You’re not alone

    No need to hide
    This is who you are
    And you are worthy
    Of every star

    The light
    And dark
    This is who you are
    The light
    And dark
    This is who you are

    Ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh
    Ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh
    Ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh
    Ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh
    Ahh, ahh Ahh, ahh
