Episode: Mariah Parker Interview Indo Latin Jazz Live in Concert
Mariah Parker has been playing music from the time she could reach the keys on the grand piano in her family home. While completing her degree in music at UC Santa Cruz, she worked with ethnomusicologist Fred Lieberman and drummer Mickey Hart on the “Planet Drum” project and became fascinated with the possibilities of bridging musical concepts from different traditions. She has performed her original compositions in festivals in the US and Europe. A gifted composer and band leader, she released her first solo recording of her compositions, “Sangria,” in February of 2009. Join me as Mariah and I talk about her new release "Indo Latin Jazz Live in Concert", Featuring Paul McCandless and Mathew Montfort among many other talented musicians.
