Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #302

04-19-18 Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #302 was taped live at Singing Brook Studio in Worthington Massachusetts and features songs by Mariam Massaro and visionary improvisation from the Gaea Star Band with Mariam on vocals, native flute, dulcimer and ukulele, Craig Harris on congas and marimba and Bob Sherwood on piano and 12-string guitar.  We begin today with the stormy, unsettled “Exploration” featuring lush native flute from Mariam and a tense, taut rhythm section.  “Following The Path” is a bouncy avant-folk piece driven along by Mariam’s eight-string ukuelele until the jazzy afro-cuban coda featuring scorching piano work from Bob.  “Yemeyayo” is a gorgeous, atmospheric jam with visionary lyrics and floating native flute from Mariam buttressed by Craig’s steady conga work.  “Let’s All Be Like The Sun” is a prayer of hope and “Pray For Peace” features acoustic 12-string from Bob in the DADGAD tuning over Craig’s heartbeat native drums.  We finish today with the hypnotic, progressive psychedelia of “Underneath The Blue Sky” featuring more evocative vocals and native flute from Mariam.
