Living in NYC you tend to get drown out by all the hustle and bustle, with all the street preachers, as well as the annoyance of bickering commuters. However there is a slim chance that your ears can catch something magical in a way that mutes the whole world around you. There are times where you just stop and relax for that brief moment to hear the sounds of one particular entity. This happened to me about two months ago hitting up the N,R,Q lines on Times Square and inside that small platform was a siren drowning out the world. Take a listen to this youtube video “Losing Faith” a live session.
I was floored just standing listening to Mariko performing covers and you can tell she has the talent to just go into her own world and forget the chaos through her voice. It was impressive and on that day when the cops came by to tell her to move along it was kind of said. I never heard the music again on that stop, but I am sure she is still performing somewhere around NYC. This just in on January 13th Mariko will be performing live at the Rockwood Music Hall with no cover charge; more information if you click on this “click me”. If you don’t get a chance to see her live, definitely hit up the links below to follow the music. At times when there is nothing but chaos there is always a way to drown out the world through great music. Stay frosty and Happy New Year.
