"Sister Awake" is a song by Canadian rock band The Tea Party. It was released as a promotional single in Canada.[1] The music video was shot in Toronto and images from the video illustrate the booklet of the album Alhambra and its multimedia component. The song was remixed by Rhys Fulber for Alhambra.

"Sister Awake" is a standard three-piece rock composition acoustically based on 12-string guitar, sitar, sarod, harmonium and goblet drums. The song used 58 recording tracks by synching up three machines.[2]

A semi-acoustic version with keyboard, goblet drums, harmonium and oud was recorded in August 1995 at Studio Morin Heights (Morin Heights) for Alhambra and appears on the European Triptych Special Tour Edition 2000 album.
