Mariam blends synthesizer and various acoustic instruments into a natural harmonic sound. Picturesque, colorful and above all soulful, Mesa Sunrise offers soothing, reflective music that debuts this German-born artist's reemergence into the musical world. The music whispers with the influence that New Mexico has had on Mariam's style. Yet, other pieces, such as "Moonlight Chant," with its tribal rhythms, reflect a worldliness that Mariam is equally capable of expressing. "In Flight" is an ethereal, delicate piece motivated by a regular cadence of birds in flight against the musical texture of rarefied air.
