    About the CD:

    You can hear the world in Sellami’s music. Not only does she sing in three languages — her native French, English and Spanish — but many of her songs run the gamut from upbeat, Latin-influenced rhythms to songs of lament, love and wanderlust.

Track Name: Laura
Laura's got truth in her eyes
She dances with the northern lights
She plays with images of hope
She plants seeds, with recipes for growth

Laura's got warmth in her heart
She manifests through all her art
She's a seeker, destination unknown
A golden dreamer, who embraces her goals

And when the clouds shadow her creative mind
She reaches out to the human kind
And when she cries
The birds are flying high
They spread her tears along the open skies

Laura's got passion in her smile
She's pure, she jumps into the wild
She absorbs pigments from the earth
And she finger paints the universe

Laura's got words for lost souls
Lyrics of love, many stories untold
Melodies through emotions unfold
Grounded presence, her family she holds

And when the clouds shadow her creative mind
She reaches out to the human kind
And when she cries
The birds are flying high
They spread her tears along the open skies
