    Beyond Ideas is a thoughtfully crafted debut EP by the German singer Tabeah. With her eight musicians – including a string ensemble, ambient guitarist Kryshe (Hidden Shoal), bass player Claas-Henning Dörris and pianist David Ehlers – Tabeah has created a sound that is moving between post-rock, baroque-pop and soundtrack. The flying melodies and vast ambient landscapes remind of Jonsi and Sigur Ros and make this music an electrifying and intimately moving experience. Tabeah shares stories of inspiring encounters with people within the Israel-Palestine conflict, Tibet and other places, with unusual depth of soul.

Track Name: Let The Rains Fall
Let The Rains Fall – Tabeah

Soldiers kick her down into the dirt,

But they cannot bind her voice for freedom.

Red barb now becomes her cloister,

But within her heart, she stands up free.

He sets himself on fire in the dark,

But as he goes he knows it's all within light.

He gives his life in deepest silence,

And the world will hear his gift to peace,


What does it take, to stand up for

What is right, to walk with

What is grace, what does it take


And the rains fall

And the floods rise

And the guns blow

And beat against the walls

Yet on rock they stand,

While the storm floods the sands,

They will not be moved,

So let the rains fall

They ride into the guns with flags of peace,

As they're taken to the sky their nation sings freedom!

A million shave their heads and fast till death,

And the world will remember the power of peace.




Would you rise?

Would you speak?

Would you fight,

For what's right?

Would I be silent?

Would I forgive?

Would I sing,

In the face of wrong?

Track Name: Reason To Go
Reason To Go

Beautiful, faint child
Take my hand
No reason, no reason
You should stay!

Guide you over
Rest at home
No reason, no reason
You should stay!

Where am I going?
Will I be ok?
What can I trust in?
Give me a sign I can feel!

Rest assured!
You will be fine!
No reason, no reason
You should fear!

Guide me along!
I’ve been waiting so long.
You take this mine hand!
It’s not mine to decide,
But don’t let go!

Take her golden, broken Soul and
Let her Feel your

See her
Oh treat her
Your own!
Track Name: Fires
Fires burn

Golden flame
Golden flame

Inside a cloth
A soft old face

A mothers tears
The only truth

Last breath of smoke
A ring she left

Forever gone
Forever gone
Track Name: Beyond Ideas
Beyond ideas

Palm tree fields where sprinklers rain,
Caged away from desert plains.
A woman hangs clothes and kids play out,
Next door the soldiers hang around.

Fears ignite and hearts are piled
With system truth and death toll files.
Everyone speaks, there are many sides.
Where did it start and whose story is right?

Beyond ideas of wrong and right,
There is a field
Where you and I we meet

We walk and listen and quietly pray,
At dawn we awake to armed brigades.
They’re headed south in line with the birds.
Dawn chorus and bomb drops blur.

Beyond ideas of wrong and right,
There is a field
Where you and I we meet

God picks up the flute and blows,
Each note comes through as needs in us -
A passion, a longing-pain,
So let my lips sound out again!

Beyond ideas of wrong and right
There is a field
A field where you and I we meet
Oh, many notes sound loud, so sing! hmm sing! Oh, sing!
