Mariam’s Musical Inspiration This Week
Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #450 is an hour of visionary acoustic improv music recorded by the Gaea Star Band with Mariam Massaro on vocals, Native flute, harmonica, shruti box, ukulele and sitar, Bob Sherwood on piano and tabla and Craig Harris on congas and Native drums. Recorded live at Singing Brook Studio in Worthington Massachusetts in July 2021, today’s show begins with the grooving rainy summer celebration “For The Cool Down”, a rocking workout driven by Craig and Bob on Native drums and tabla supporting Mariam’s evocative lyric and fine, energized native flute. Bob moves to the piano to lay down a simple funk left hand as Mariam steps into the space with ever-more assertive flute passages. Pretty, open piano and bluesy harmonica introduce the lovely “I Am That I Am”, a gorgeous ballad underpinned by Mariam’s droning shruti box and “Wind Whistling Through The Window” is a peaceful study of a drifting day with a lovely vocal from Mariam over a fine backdrop of piano, congas and ukulele. “Day Lilies Rising High” is another summer celebration, this team featuring rolling, bluesy piano from Bob and a lovely tale of magic realism from Mariam. “I Am Healed by the Peaceful Morning” is a drifting, psychedelic dream with an insistent gospel motif from Bob underpinning a lovely lyric of praise from Mariam. Mariam plays her beautiful 8 string ukulele for the dreamy “Golden Sun” is a celebration of Mother Earth in high summer, and drifts along with pretty piano ostinatos under Mariam’s evocative vocal. We finish today’s show with an expansive raga called “The Mystery Of Life” as Mariam plays her sitar at the center of a percussion-rich dancelike piece.
Today on Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #530 the Gaea Star Band presents an hour of acoustic visionary improv music featuring Mariam Massaro on vocals, Native flute, acoustic guitar and ukulele, Bob Sherwood on piano and Craig Harris on Native drums and congas. Recorded live at Singing Brook Studio in Worthington Massachusetts in late May of 2023, today’s show begins with the mystical and energized “Rivers Running Pure”, a sprawling, ambitious and constantly evolving piece featuring three main movements. Part Two is as Native flute fanfare from Mariam above swirling piano and Part Three, or “What A Lovely Way” features a gorgeous vocal from Mariam above beautiful, evocative piano themes from Bob. “It’s Just The Time” is a brooding minor ballad led by Mariam’s ukulele that develops into a powerful prayer and “Every Day” is a lilting folk tune featuring a fine, simple melody from Mariam over imaginative backing from Craig and Bob with Mariam’s chiming 8-string ukulele dancing tirelessly. Mariam plays her hushed, intense acoustic guitar on “Treasures”, a mysterious, relentless song that rises to an intense crescendo with Bob’s assertive, hypnotic piano figures. We finish today’s show with the beautiful and classically formal “We Are The Ancient Ones” featuring beautiful, soaring Native flute passages from Mariam over a dusty, timeworn piano backing from Bob.

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.

It is a beautiful celebration of the Divine Feminine with her original songs about the magnificent Goddesses of Gaea Star that have touched her life in all her worldly travels.
