HAYAT SELIM – THE ARTIST BEHIND ETHNIC VOCAL PHRASES
Hayat Selim (b.1990) is a film composer and singer-songwriter from Cairo, Egypt. She graduated with a masters in composition for screen from the Royal College of Music, London, and is now based in the UK. Her single, Mirage, her first in classical Fusha Arabic, was nominated in the Best Song category of the Jerry Goldsmith Awards 2019 and started opening doors in Middle Eastern singing. Hayat writes music for film and games, often merging Western classical orchestration with world music, atmospheric soundscapes and vocals. She sings in English, German, Arabic, Italian, Latin and French and has sung in Bulgarian and Hebrew on some occasions.
“When I was commissioned by Sonuscore for this library, I tried to visualize what themes in an ethnic voice library would work for a wide range of movie genres. I hope my phrases will be useful for film composers to create intense and emotional soundtracks,” she says.
