Mariam’s Musical Inspiration This Week
Today on The Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour we present a vibrant show from spring of 2019- Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #353 is an hour of visionary acoustic improv music featuring the Gaea Star Band with Mariam Massaro on vocals, native flute, ukulele, 12- and 6- string acoustic guitars and celtic harp, Bob Sherwood on piano and Craig Harris on congas and native drums. Recorded on a warm but overcast May day at Singing Brook Studio in Worthington, Massachusetts, today’s show begins with the soulful and meditative “For The Blessing Of Life”, a lush prayer to hope featuring gorgeous native flute from Mariam and spacious, jazzy piano figurations from Bob. “Alchemical Words” is a deeply beautiful improv piece about the power of words featuring the best from everyone in the combo; Craig’s steady, authoritative congas, Mariam’s praise-filled lyric, lush vocal and chiming 12-string acoustic, and Bob’s imaginative and questing piano work. “Into The Morning We Sail” is driven along by Mariam’s ukulele and mystical lyrics and is a meditative, minimalist piece that leads into the bittersweet innocence of “May We Start All Over Again”, another languid, gorgeous piece featuring a lovely, fragile melody from Mariam. We conclude today’s show with lovely and assured takes of three of Mariam’s recorded songs, the hopeful, deep “Restore”, the bittersweet and deeply emotional “Rainbows” and the always fun and joyful “Pele”.
Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #518 is an hour of visionary acoustic improvised music played live by the Gaea Star Band in early January of 2023. Recorded at Singing Brook Studio in Worthington, Massachusetts, today’s show features Mariam Massaro on vocals, Native flute, ukulele, shruti box, harmonica and percussion, Bob Sherwood on piano and Craig Harris on Native drums and congas. We begin today’s show with the driving, energized, inspiring “At Last”, a dramatic, bright song featuring fine work from the whole ensemble built on Craig’s powerful heartbeat. Mariam ushers in the beautiful, mystical “Cradle Me” with Native flute and shruti box and Bob takes up a circular gospel figure as the song settles into a hushed yet powerful prayer. “Earth Dwellers In The Rain” is a hushed, intense song built on an unsettled, stormy piano cadence from Bob that recalls rain, mist and shifting winds. “All Float Away On A Moonlight Night” is a rocking, evocative take on that most iconic subjects of Mariam’s lyrical interest, namely the Moon. This beautiful, hypnotic song features a gorgeous vocal, driving rhythm from the band and imaginative, mesmerizing piano figures from Bob that pull the song ever deeper into the vortex of funk. “Eternally Trusting” is a delicate, wintery, drifting piece with a frosty piano ostinato from Bob woven through Mariam’s precise, chiming ukulele and Craig’s heartbeat congas and “Open Wide To Receive” is an aching, beautiful nursery rhyme of a song distinguished by a lovely, drifting vocal from Mariam We finish today’s show with a powerful, tight reading of Mariam’s classic island song “Pele”, delivered with fire and assurance from the whole group, built around Mariam’s tight, punchy soprano ukulele.
