10-15-21 Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #463 is an hour of visionary acoustic improvisational music featuring the Gaea Star Band with Mariam Massaro on vocals, Native flute, acoustic guitar, shruti box, harmonica, ukulele and kalimba, Bob Sherwood on piano and Craig Harris on congas and Native drums. Today’s episode was recorded live in September 2021 at Singing Brook Studio in Worthington, Massachusetts, and begins with the floating, mystical “Hold The Light”, a beautiful, serene peace featuring lyrical native flute and a fine vocal from Mariam. Mariam strums her ukulele for the evocative, peaceful twilight song “Serenading”, a song in praise of the last days of summer suspended in minimalist piano and steady congas. Mariam’s shruti box provides the drone for the raga “Restore Your Vision” and the gorgeous “Oh The Fireflies” is another paean to the end of summer that drifts on Mariam’s shimmering acoustic guitar and jazzy piano from Bob. “Achineayo” is a gentle blues with lyrical harmonica from Mariam and fundamental Native drum from Craig over Bob’s rolling gospel piano. We complete today’s show with the percolating “If Only” a song of love and longing with a gospel feel.
