Miriam’s music seamlessly blends African influences with blues and folk infused melodies that also capture the wild Australian landscapes of her home. Her songs are a collection of stories beautifully told through strings, powerful lyrics and her unmistakable voice. Playing kora as well as acoustic guitar, Miriam is joined by exceptional strings players – Lara Goodridge (violin)of Baby et Lulu fame and Kate Adams (cello).With their sublime strings and lush vocal harmonies there is a chemistry between these musicians and their instruments that melds into a soaring beautiful soundscape.
(Miriam) has a knack for giving her songs a feeling of significance, even while they float with effervescent pop pleasure. Wikipedia’s explanation of world music includes a cited description as “someone else’s local music”. In Lieberman’s case, it’s ours. “
