05-27-21 Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #443 is an hour of visionary improvisational acoustic music recorded live by the Gaea Star Band with Mariam Massaro on vocals, native flute, ukulele and acoustic guitar, Robin Rooney on djimbe, celtic harp and vocals and Bob Sherwood on piano. Recorded live at Singing Brook Studio in mid-May of 2021, today’s show begins with the gentle folk ballad “There’s Only One Way”, featuring lovely harmonies from Mariam and Robin. “Trust” from the “Gaea Star Crystal” album is given a driving rock treatment hear with a powerful rhythm backing from Robin and Craig. “Every Moment” is another subtle, soft ballad featuring a deeply sensitive vocal from Mariam and “Calling In The Rain” is a driving, powerful piece with blues and rock flavors and propulsive djimbe from Robin. Next up we present “No Place Like Home” follows with a skipping, light feel. “Into The Dark” is a breathless invocation of nature and night set to a deep and beautiful musical backing with a bravura piano performance from Bob. “Listen To The Elders” is a swirling, dizzying piece with exceptional vocals from Mariam and Robin and we close today with the classic “Oya Thunderqueen” from the “Gaea Star Goddesses” CD.
