I got to see one of my old favourites, Mariam Wallentin (of Wildbirds & Peacedrums) perform twice this week with her new project Mariam The Believer. Andreas Werliin (of Wildbirds) was also on drums. There’s an album coming in October on Moshi Moshi.
Here is some great footage of Mariam performing my favourite Wildbirds song, My Heart, with a full orchestra:
And here it is in its original arrangement, with Andreas’ and Mariam’s incredible steel/pan drum energy explosion. So fantastic. Definitely watch this too, if you’ve never heard the original version before, as the orchestral arrangement is very different.
