Hayat Selim

Film Composer // Singer // Songwriter


Thank you for visiting my website. My name is Hayat Selim and I am Egyptian born and raised, living in the United Kingdom since 2017. I write songs about life and music for motion picture. My favorite approach to composition is merging classical cinematic orchestration with world music, electronic music and voice. The world has endless sounds and characters to explore and it is always thrilling to try out new approaches and to merge existing ones. Please feel free to reach out and let us create!
