The saying Crossing the Rubicon originates from Julius Caesar, who by crossing the river Rubicon provoked a war. The phrase describes an irrevocable act that will change everything.

Selma crossed that river and made a CD about it. Crossing the Rubicon is an adventurous musical journey through love and her ruins. With Spanish guitar, saz, accordion and percussion meeting piano, electric guitar and drums to merge into a hybrid of Eastern and Western sounds.

Melancholy plays a leading emotion in Selma’s music, but on this cd for the first time she was able to express anger and fury too musically. So do not expect sweet cheery tunes by quiet rippling water. Crossing the Rubicon is a raging river, which you’ll escape with bated breath and a feeling of fulfillment.
