Omar Raafat – The Portrait

Omar Raafat – The Portrait (Spotify)

"The Portrait" is one of the singles in the album " A Way Home" by multi-instrumentalist and music producer Omar Raafat. The album blends piano, guitar and electronic synths with a classical string quartet bringing a modern cinematic approach with intimate and organic sounds. Written and recorded in Victoria, BC, the album was heavily influenced by the beauty of the nature in the area. Spending a lot of time in the wilderness fuelled the inspiration and themes of the songs. A melancholy and intense emotional journey from start to finish draws us into an inward reflection. The album also features hidden soundscapes recorded at several special outdoor hiking spots around Vancouver island.
