An Evening Of Song!
Treasure Beach Culture Fest, 2012
Lady Bird Walking
To sing is to soar, to cry, to share, to pray, to love, to give, to laugh, to protest, to breathe, to live... To sing is to be!" Sharon Martini

On Saturday evening, Sharon Martini followed her contribution to Talking Trees Literary Fiesta with “An Evening of Song!” An eclectic evening of melodic musical meandering.” Presented by “The Ladies Who Dare!” productions, at the newly reopened South Jammin Bar & Restaurant, Martini, accompanied magnificently on keyboard by classical pianist (and NCU Assistant Professor of Music,) Edison Valencia, mesmerized with vocal renditions including, Faurés Pie Jesu, opera favorite, Habañera from Carmen, emotionally charged Negro spirituals, Deep River and Steel Away. She had the audience singing along to musical theater classic, I Could Have Danced All Night, and certain members of the audience cooling off after a steamy Whatever Lola Wants.

In the second half of the program Martini sang (self-accompanied on guitar) her original, composition, Black Angel. Then came the cameo appearances.

Like a snake charmer, Classical clarinetist, Rafael Salazar, (Woodwind Director of the Jamaican Symphony Orchestra, and NCU music lecturer,) had patrons harmonically hypnotized, dancing in their seats, as he undulated majestically across the stage releasing sweet sounds from his instrument in the form of Long, Long Ago by Thomas Haynes Bayly, and the Cuban folk piece, Dora Amalia. This was followed by the quiet intensity of classical cellist, Jose Carlos Oxamendi whose cello “sang” the songs of Johan Sebastian Bach, and the Cuban Tango, Milonga.

The program wrapped up with a Jamaican folk sing-a-long accompanied by Treasure Beach’s own “The Shane Drummers” whom then “called” everyone from their seats, enraptured, to a magically materialised dance floor, with the rhythmic beat of their drumming. Reminding us that at the root of the music genres, whether classical, jazz, opera, acoustic or folk, is the African drumbeat – the primal heartbeat of humanity.

An Evening Of Song! Provided a tasty musical smorgasbord that whet one’s music appetite, and left you both curious, and hungry, for more. “Unforgettable, and in Treasure Beach!” was how one glowing audience member described it all.
