Mariam’s Theme This Week
Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #374 Part Two is an hour of compelling visionary acoustic improvisational music performed by the Gaea Star Band with Mariam Massaro on vocals, native flute, harmonium and ukulele, Bob Sherwood on piano and Craig Harris on congas and native drums. Recorded live at Singing Brook Studio in Worthington Massachusetts in November 2019, today’s show begins with the multifaceted and deeply compelling musical journey “We’re Rising As Colors Shining Brightly”, an epic piece of improvised music that moves through native, minimalist, classical, afrocuban and funk flavors in a restless, deeply evocative mix that comes to land in an elegiac, gentle place as Mariam decorates the mix with her beautiful native flute. “Let’s All Take Back Our Power” is led by Mariam’s lovely vocal and harmonium and features fundamental native drums from Craig and naïve classical and folk colors from Bob’s piano. “Lead Me Down” is a classic Mariam song that evokes Hawaii and her powerful volcanoes. We finish today with another song from Mariam, “Queen Of Heaven” from the 2012 “Gaea Star Goddesses album. Today’s version evokes the power and deeply spiritual, fundamental environmental message of the original and is delivered with fire and passion.
Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #374 was taped at Singing Brook Studio in Worthington, MA in November 2019 and is an hour of visionary improv and songs by Mariam Massaro featuring the Gaea Star Band with Mariam on vocals, acoustic guitar, celtic harp, native flute and ukulele, Bob Sherwood on piano and Craig Harris on congas and percussion. Today’s first piece is the pretty, affecting Hawaiian folk of “Time To Plant The Seeds” featuring a hypnotic ukulele part from Mariam and a slowly building epic piano accompaniment by Bob. “We Can All Come Home Now” is a stately ballad with dramatic rolling drums from Craig and Mariam’s always-lyrical, expressive native flute. “Full Sweep” is a hypnotic, soul-inflected ballad with a mesmeric conga and piano pattern that extends and expands and an inspirational lyric from Mariam. Next up Mariam picks up the acoustic guitar for the energized folk pop of “Bountiful Blessings Bursting Brightly”, a swirling, mysterious piece characterized by Mariam’s soaring melody and deeply evocative piano from Bob. “Everywhere” is a jazzy, nuanced epic ballad that pulls in elements of gospel and Beatlesque pop and “So Many Ways” is an aching, triumphant improvisation built around a lush, soaring melody from Mariam, both vocally and on her native harp.
