Selina Zakarias is #Flyah
After reading the musical prose that colored her grandmother's poetry at an early age, Selina Zakaria's inner voice began to seek an outlet for artistic expression. Selina's music is filled with smooth musicality and neo-soul which weaves pop, introspective lyrics, and a voice colored by an unbreakable spirit and the raw attitude.
"Most of my music is autobiographical and personal, but occasionally, I try to speak on behalf of issues I know people can relate to,” says Zakaria. "Whether I'm writing music people can dance to, or putting together an acoustic piece that's more reflective, I'm always writing from the perspective of a storyteller looking to share experiences with the world."
Zakaria's words hold hints of self-reflection, compassion, and strength. "Insecure Girl," a song about Zakaria's own struggles with womanhood, includes a buoyant chorus that accentuates Zakaria's soulful voice. In "Morphine," Zakaria uses a 90's alt-rock arrangement to tell the story of chasing her dreams while struggling with the ever present mix of emotional overtones society inflicts.
