”Oh the wind in my hair / It sings my song / To be a wanderer and to go home”: two years ago, on the title track of her second album, Selima Taiba aka Mogli offered a neat description of where she gets her inspiration.
On Wanderer, the Berlin-based singer-songwriter with German-Algerian roots evoked the epic natural beauty of a road trip that she took with her boyfriend across North America in a converted school bus.
Renamed Expedition Happiness, the documentary was unexpectedly screened in cinemas and her warm, melancholy voice won the hearts of the global Instagram community. The little nightingale, as her grandfather used to call her, has spread her wings.
