Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #326 was recorded live at Singing Bridge Studio in Worthington, Massachusetts in September of 2018 and features visionary acoustic improv from the Gaea Star Band with Mariam Massaro on vocals, native flute, celtic harp, percussion, ukulele, 12-string acoustic guitar and dulcimer, Bob Sherwood on piano and tabla and Craig Harris on congas and native drums.  We begin with the mystical, evocative “Ariana Shiasta”, a woodland tone poem featuring gorgeous native flute from Mariam and driven by Craig’s earthy, heartbeat native drumming.  Drawing from folk music and led by Mariam’s chiming 12-string Martin guitar, “I Hear The Rain” is a deeply affecting, bittersweet song about the cleansing, blessing rain and “Have You Listened To The Trees Today?” is a lush, gospel-tinged song of deep energy driven by prayerful piano and Mariam’s tenor ukulele, evoking peaceful nature.  Mariam strums her dulcimer to provide the backbone for the mystical, psychedelic, droning “So Many Changes”, an eastern-influenced drone piece with powerful tandem drumming from Craig and Bob.  Many movements and twists define this epic, varied piece of inspired improvisation which runs to an expansive 25 minutes!

Mariam channels spiritual messages and songs from her twin flame, Ashento, an ascended master and is currently co-writing  The Teachings of Ashento with him. 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.
