Bongo Boy Rock n Roll TV Show Series Season 12 Episode 7 – “Fall & Peace”

Review by Dave Franklin (Dancing About Architecture)

Those familiar with the Bongo Boy roster and musical friends will recognise the singular voice of Annemarie Picerno immediately as she kicks things off with What Will You Say, a bluesy-soul ballad, but one forged of confident tones and gorgeous textures. The term power ballad managed to get itself a lousy name and evokes images of poodle-haired glam rockers in unnecessarily tight jeans, but this is a power ballad in perhaps the truest sense of the words. 

Love and Peace is a gorgeous collaboration that, as dark clouds gather around our world, calls for harmony and empathy, calm and understanding…love and peace. Players from all musical walks of life join singer and musician Prem Murti. Singers Natalie Ai Kamauu and Annemarie Picerno lay down an array of gorgeous controlled and considered vocals, courtesy of Mike Greenly, over Russ Hewitt’s spacious, picked acoustic guitar. The song gradually swathes in classical strings courtesy of An Vedi’s delicate violin and Tess Remy-Schumacher’s sumptuous cello. The result is a genuinely brilliant piece that goes beyond mere music or even art and offers a work of sonic healing and something to think about in this increasingly divided world on the only planet we have ever called home. Excellent!

BONGO BOY TV SEASON 12 EPISODE 7

ARK OF MUSIC REVIEW

The first video features the song “What Will You Say” from Annemarie Picerno. This is a slow, mellow track finding Annemarie…relaxing in a tub. Sure, there’s heartache and a slavish devotion to the expectations of others – but Annemarie, while soaking in symbolic disinterest, lets the worries and concerns roll off her back like so much bathwater. And with a smoking cigarette, dark glasses, and laissez-faire attitude, Annemarie simply relaxes, remains curious, but lets it all play out. 

Prem Murti, Natalie Ai Kamauu, Mike Greenly, Annemarie Picerno (remember her?), Tess Remy-Schumacher, An Vedi, and Russ Hewitt with their latest track, “Love and Peace.” This is a slow, somber track with strong, balanced vocals. It’s a musical entreatment for something better – something beyond the complicated human condition. “Love and Peace” features great orchestration, talented players, and moments where danceable percussion grants the song additional strength.
