01-10-19 Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #336
Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour was recorded live at Singing Brook Studio in Worthington, Massachusetts and is an hour of visionary acoustic improvisational music featuring the Gaea Star Band with Mariam Massaro on vocals, native flute, acoustic guitar, baritone ukulele and celtic harp, Bob Sherwood on piano and Craig Harris on congas and native drums. Today’s show begins with the lush and evocative “I Sail On This Fine Day Of Light”, a showcase for Mariam’s beautiful vocal, expressive lyrics of wonder and gratitude delivered in a lush envelope of imaginative piano passages and steady congas. “Hello Golden Sun” continues the theme of deep expression, opening with a native-influenced flute fanfare and Mariam’s unaccompanied vocal before developing into a mystical and deeply affecting piece full of mystery and musical mastery. “I Love My Life” floats in on a cloud of piano and Mariam’s expressive ukulele, braiding a tale of gratitude and reverence in Mariam’s lovely vocal. “Never Turn Away From Your Dreams” is another gorgeous prayer of gratitude with deep and deeply felt musical accompaniment that stretches and morphs and moves through various tableaux and “May We All Receive The Perfection” closes today’s show in a lush cloud of prayerful lyrical and musical mastery.
