Release: 25.11.2022

'Tear Drop' is the bloom of my journey as a woman, a migrant woman, coming from a background that did not allow her to dream of freedom. In touch with my vulnerabilities and pain, I am practicing my truth, power, trust, hope, and dignity in these compositions and poems. This album is the coming together of the worlds I was exposed to in my 38 years of living on this planet and the vision I have about how music should be practiced and how it could sound like. It is where I fully demonstrate my abilities as a vocalist, pianist, composer, arranger, band leader, and producer. The ensemble also consists of musicians who understand displacement, rediscovery, and risk-taking, just like me. We are all improvisers at heart and in practice who can find a sense of freedom and depth even in the simplest forms of music. This album goes beyond the definitions we have of genre and style. It is the closest I could get to my story and in doing so I could only wish it reaches other people’s truth and hearts.
