Salinas Underground

We tell the story of the city we grew up with by interviewing the people that make it what it is: the business people, the musicians, the scholars, anyone that adds to the culture of Salinas.

Some people are born and raised in Salinas. And some end up getting called here while sitting in a medidative bath. Samirah the Sapphic Siren (@siren.samirah) is the second kind of person and she decided to start her journey in Salinas in the middle of a global pandemic. She is a poet who transformed her poetry into a set of beautiful Tarot cards. She talks to us about how this set of cards came to be and why they are so personal to her. They are available to buy at or if you can follow and view the cards on her Instagram @TarotTeaPoetry
