    With her soulful vocals, 21 string African harp (kora) and percussive styled guitar, Miriam’s music is both lyrical and uplifting. Added is the cello and rich vocal harmonies of Kate Adams. With an unconventional mix of kora – an instrument made from a gourd and fishing line, guitar and the classical cello, prepare for a musical journey built of warm melodies, lush harmonies and soaring string arrangements. Once known as the duo Naked Without My Cello, these two musicians have a musical friendship that has spanned for almost a decade. Miriam will be releasing her much anticipated new album Birds of the Moon in August 2014. Miriam has released 3 albums to date. Her latest This Is The Story was recorded in Mali West Africa and Australia with members of Toumani Diabate’s Symmetric Orchestra as well as stellar Australian players. “Lieberman is a robust singer with a sensual yet brittle undertone. Her songs are beautifully melodic, richly textured but can have pointed themes. Simply brilliant!” 4 and a half stars – J. Glorfeld - THE AGE

    Saturday 29 March: “Miriam Lieberman is something of a renaissance woman ……somehow she achieves the almost impossible in blending patterned western-ed pop writing with the earthy mystique of African rhythms and freaky world instruments.” Sydney City News. Miriam is a singer songwriter who has travelled the world in search of songs, instruments and adventure. The result is “a rich cross cultural hybrid“ of music that’s both uplifting in song and infectious in rhythm. She blends her 21 fishing line string African harp known as the kora, percussive styled guitar and soulful vocals creating music that is both lyrical and uplifting. She is joined by the gorgeous voices of Kate Adams and Lara Goodridge (Baby et Lulu/ Fourplay) on cello and violin. Expect rich vocal harmonies and soaring string arrangements. Despite this unusual mix of pure classical instruments and something made from a large gourd strung with fishing line, they create a sound built of warm melodies and lush harmonies, where West African grooves accompany heartfelt stories from life. Miriam will be playing songs from her new album (soon to be released) as well as some old favorites. “Lieberman is a robust singer with a sensual yet brittle undertone. Her songs are beautifully melodic, richly textured but can have pointed themes. Simply brilliant!” 4 and a half stars THE AGE Bookings close at 4pm on the day.
