Mariam’s Musical Inspiration This Week
Gaea Star Crystal #553 is an hour of improvised, visionary acoustic music recorded live by The Gaea Star Band with Mariam Massaro on vocals, acoustic guitar, Celtic harp, ukulele, Native flute and mandolin, Bob Sherwood on piano and Craig Harris on Native drum and congas. Recorded live at Singing Brook Studio in Worthington Massachusetts in November of 2023, today’s show begins with a series of unique musical snippets recorded to be included in Mariam’s upcoming audiobook “Gaea Star Crystal: Awakening The Tribes Of Light”. “Star Of Water” and “Heya Heya Hey” are drifting tone poems and “Ancient Mother” is a pretty, reverent minor key medicine song. Returning to regular long-form songs for today’s show, “Amsinia” is a rich ballad with lovely Native flute and vocal work from Mariam and “Grateful” is a powerful mélange of Native and modern sounds that showcases a powerful vocal from Mariam and vibrant, shifting minimalist piano from Bob. “Underneath It All” is a deep minor prayer with fine ensemble work from the whole band supporting Mariam’s languid vocal; Craig’s steady, mellow congas, Bob’s aching minor cadences and Mariam’s spot-on acoustic rhythm guitar strumming. “Underneath It All Part 2 (Let’s Become Excited) continues with a delicate, shaded B minor and more lyrical word play from Mariam. “Grateful For Peace” is a highlight today, a sky-wide, rousing gospel song that begins with a simple framework of mandolin from Mariam, fundamental Native drum from Craig and a piano figure from Bob that recalls classic gospel, then grows patiently into a full-throated epic supporting Mariam’s powerful vocal. We close today with the impressionistic, appropriately drifting “Water”, a mystical musical puzzle in praise of the almighty H2O.
Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #552 is an hour of improvised visionary acoustic music recorded live every Monday at Singing Brook Studio in Worthington, Massachusetts and features The Gaea Star Band with Mariam Massaro on vocals, Native flute, acoustic guitar, mandolin, ukulele and harmonica, Bob Sherwood on piano and Craig Harris on Native drum and congas. Today’s show, recorded in mid-November of 2023, begins with the upbeat folk workout “In The Dark Of The Night” featuring a fine, narrative vocal from Mariam and “You Are At Peace” is a gorgeous, stately, gospel-tinged song with a fine vocal and sensitive, filigreed piano work. “Let’s Be One” is a gorgeous, shaded piece, spacious and evocative, driven by Mariam’s tight ukulele work against Craig’s fundamental congas and braided through with sophisticated chord journeys from the piano. Following various movements, “Let’s Be One” settles into a powerful, hypnotic drone as a feature for Mariam’s outstanding voice and flute conversations. Today’s blues “Every Day Count Your Blessings” carries a Ray Charles influence in rhythm and structure and showcases rocking, astringent blues harp and vocals from Mariam. “Step On The Button To Change The World” comes in hushed and sweet with Craig’s earth groove a perfect support for Mariam’s chiming mandolin and Bob’s rich, active piano. “Thistle In The Wind” comes from Mariam’s children’s album and is a charming, naïve folk blues adorned with Mariam’s gorgeous vocal above a soundstage of churning congas, airtight ukulele and spidery Delta blues piano. “Flowers Of Delight” is a psychedelic, heavy-with-summer devotional song from Mariam’s “Release” album, an intoxicating cloud of August dusk and “Filling My Heart With Peace” closes today’s show as a driving, Dionysian apex coda to the drifting “Flowers Of Delight”.

Review from Pro Merit at Fiverr
The book is well written by the author with attention to detail. The book is well punctuated with stated facts. Though the book is Sci-Fi, the book clearly explained the need why the world should be at peace. It described a world without violence, peaceful and united without violence. Though the book is yet to be complete, the author explained the plot of the book in a simple term that everyone can understand.
The author’s diction is strong that it creates imagery in the minds of the reader. Though the book is yet to be acted, the editor will suggest that when the book is complete, it should be acted. Though the characters in the book are many, the author was able to describe each character and their personality in the book.
It focuses on love. Spreading of love, unity, and kindness to the rest of the world. The editor marveled at how the author was able to describe things that happened in the Gaea Star as if the author was there. The love cycle and attraction in the novel between Rionarta, Liliana, Azul, Opana, Teladi, Ayalasha, Intamay, etc. is amazing. It is a book that can be read by both adults and children. This book is full of knowledge and experiences.
The author in the book didn’t limit the work to the star travelers, emphasis was also laid on the mermaid, elves, llamas, the use of crystals, magic, old traditions, songs, etc. Most times, the mermaids are seen as evil or witches who are out to kill and destroy. They are seen as one of the dangers of the ocean who are out to kill and destroy. But the book gave another dimension of the mermaids. In this book, the mermaids were actually helpful in aiding the mission of the travelers in the quest to bring love and cure humanity’s problems. The lesson taken is that the world will be a better place without bias, sentiment, hatred, etc…..
