Raknus Selu

Language Used / Song

A song about the healing power of the mountains, Raknus Selu tells a story when one morning, my wounded soul closes its eyes in the darkness and follows an unseen trail up to a mountain.
Raknus~selu~Raknus~selu, like a spell sung with tone and melody, reminds me of the mountains and the forest, the feeling of being embraced by heaven and earth, and the warmth of being held by a mother's hand. It carries me and holds me as I slowly walk on the mountain trail. Waking up with two lines of tears falling, I know my way will go on.
