18/4 -15 New single out now! Lars Wallin & The TribeLars: Pearl Of The East

The new song ”Pearl of the east” is about the daughters of The Pearl Of The East. The lyrics and music came to me after a day at one of the asylum camps where I work. All day I had been looking into the eyes at all these women with their children who has fled from their homelands. Beautiful people now struggeling to learn the language, create a life in a new country still worrying about asylum and about family members still stuck in their old countries. I can´t even imagine what they have to go through. Damascus goes under the nick names ”Pearl of the East” and ”The Jasmine”. The lyrics could also be about all the women and children I meet from countries like Eritrea, Somalia and Ethiopia. I know many ”Pearls of the East”. Even one of my favourite places in the world, east Berlin is a Pearl Of The East, today a free and peaceful country and city. Anyway… This is a song about refugees and the oldest capital city in the world.

Pearl of the east
Text & Music: Lars Wallin

She´s been praised for her luchness and beauty
Empires rise and fall tells the story
Though her daughters, they had to leave
They still dream of that old Jasmine

She´s the pearl of the east
Her beauty never ceased
She´s the pearl of the east
Inshallah she will be released

Like the rythm of a beating heart
Inside of me we never been apart
Some cross foreign land and waters
Trying to reach distant borders…
that are closed for you, somehow we will make it through
borders… that are closed for you, somehow we will make it through

You´re the pearl of the east
Your beauty never ceased
You´re the pearl of the east
Inshallah you will be released
