Find Out Where the Mermaids Are
You can witness Maryama’s uniqueness first hand in the music video for “Where the Mermaids Are.” The song starts slow and soft as Maryama’s calming voice sets in to lead you into her world. It sounds like a lounge jazz song, almost Norah Jones-esque, but still peaks your interest to keep you listening until the end. The video itself is equally as appealing. The setting is in the ocean and cuts to close-ups of Maryama both singing and swimming in the water. It has a cinematic quality and incorporates reds and purples to fit the tone of the melody. Seeing Maryama in the water makes it seem like her natural state, as the gentle rolling of the waves mirrors her ethereal sound.
Maryama currently resides in Los Angeles and continues to study music. To keep up to date with her releases, check out her website.
