More about Miriam Lieberman and her Trio

This Sydney based singer songwriter is well known not only for her unmistakable voice and songwriting, but for playing the 21 string West African harp, known as the kora. Miriam draws her influences from far and wide - having most notably spent long periods of time in studying traditional music in West Africa where she studied with multi Grammy Award winning kora player Toumani Diabate.

Her songs seamlessly blend African influences with folk infused melodies. In essence they are a collection of stories, beautifully told through strings, powerful lyrics and her emotive voice. Playing kora as well as acoustic guitar, Miriam is joined by exceptional strings players - violinist Lara Goodridge (FourPlay/ Baby et Lulu) and cellist Lara Goodridge as well as cellist Kate Adams. Adding 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’s most recent album 'Birds Of The Moon' (released in November 2014) made Album Of The Week on Radio National, had rave reviews in the Herald, The Age, The Music and The Australian. It was also used in the score for feature film All About E. All this activity propelled the trio onto an extended tour around the country. They have performed at music venues and festivals around the country and have plans to record and release Miriam’s fifth album later this year.

“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 stars. “ The Age
