Mariam’s Theme This Week
Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #368 is an hour of acoustic visionary musical improvisation from The Gaea Star Band with Mariam Massaro on vocals, native flute, ukulele, acoustic guitar and celtic harp, Bob Sherwood on piano and Craig Harris on congas and native drums. Recorded live at Singing Brook Studio in Worthington, MA, today’s show begins with the gentle acoustic folk of “Finding Our Way Through Life”, a languid slice of Americana that leads into “Love Feels So Good”, a mystical, raga-like piece featuring a thick layer of overdubs and compelling native flute from Mariam. “As The Seasons Change” brings an autumnal chill and crispness to the hour with evocative, minimalist piano from Bob over a driving ukulele and conga groove. Next up is the sunny, naïve “Keep Shining Brightly”, a vehicle for a hopeful, loving prayer from Mariam, followed by the pretty, relaxed ballad “Just Keep On Turning The Page Of Life”, a lush and varied piece that visits classical areas with Bob’s baroque piano figures and Mariam’s studied, precise and controlled native flute work. “Restore” is a beautiful ballad in praise of caring for the earth from Mariam’s “Vision Quest” album, followed by the intense, powerful, elemental “I Am The Mother Earth”, another song from “Vision Quest” that never fails to inspire awe and wonder at the power of nature. We finish today with the mysterious, supernatural “Ryalia”, a song from Mariam about a priestess of the forest and the reverence shown to her by the woodland creatures.
Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #367 Part Two was recorded at Singing Brook Studio in Worthington Massachusetts on September 16, 2019 and consists of inspiring, visionary songs by Mariam Massaro and acoustic improvisations by The Gaea Star Band with Mariam on vocals, 12 and 6 string acoustic guitars, ukulele and native flute, Bob Sherwood on piano and Craig Harris on congas and native drums. Today’s show is the second half of an epic session and begins with the mystical “This Time”, a swirling raga led by Mariam’s Martin 12-string. “We Are The Ancient Ones” and “Everything and Everyone Matters” flow from the same musical fiber as the opener, full of motion and drama. Mariam picks up her ukulele for “Dedicated To The Dragonflies”, a mystical minor piece with a hint of blues from Bob. “I’m Here Now” is a lush ballad featuring virtuosic native flute commentary from Mariam and “Let’s Make It Right” is a bright, sunny folk song led by Mariam’s acoustic guitar and inspiring lyric. “You And Me Sailing On The Open Sea” is a gorgeous tone poem that breathes serenity and today’s closer is Mariam’s classic “Burning Ember” from the Smooth Sailin’ Love Songs LP.

The following is a message from Ashento. “As a messenger of spirit, be the hands, the voice, the touch, the example of love to shine, to reflect the deep abiding love that flows eternally from one’s spirit into life, to heal and spread love even more. To enlarge the capacity for revealing love at all times is to walk the path of the peaceful messenger.” She wrote and is currently filming the Gaea Star Crystal screenplay with Ashento’s celestial guidance.
