Hayat Selim

Film Composer // Singer-Songwriter


Thank you for visiting my website. My name is Hayat and I am Egyptian born and raised, living in the United Kingdom since 2017. I love nothing more in the world than writing songs about life and music for film and games. My favorite approach to composition is merging Western classical orchestration with world music, electronics and vocals. As composers we have very little time to explore the world in real; might as well explore its sounds.


'Mirage' is now available on all streaming platforms


Hayat Selim is commissioned by the Christopher Newport University, Virginia, to write a concert piece for woodwind, brass and percussion orchestra.

'One World Or Another' is to premier in 2021or later depending on the pandemic situation.
