Guitarist-Singer-Songwriter Mama Miriama has always been on the path of the musician/traveler. Her quest for music has brought her to five continents. Stints in India, West Africa, Europe and Mexico mixed with her lifelong love of good 'ol RocknRoll, American style, have imbued her with her unique instrumental and vocal style. Her solo and group performances showcase her multi-instrumental talents on guitar, violin, and vocals. Her own original songs are mixed in with reworkings of traditional tunes and chants from many sources, interpretations and translations of the songs of songwriters met worldwide and new renditions of select covers and jazzy standards.
