Saima (Journey Through the Fairy Land) is a song performed by Kerli that features only her vocals, nature and electronic sounds.
I did this whole thing on my laptop and had a lot of fun recording all the water sounds(by my friends pool) and wind chimes outside my window. I wanted to create like a whole story where these people travel through thick foggy forests and finally get to this magical place where the nymphs call them to get in the calm waters. They sing "tule siia, kallis laps", which means "come here, my dear child", in estonian.
It doesn't mean anything. It just popped up in my head so it became the title.
