Mayan Trails By Michelle Qureshi

To be honest it is always a pleasure to listen to any Michelle Qureshi composition, her style, presentation and arrangements always either take you on a delightful musical journey, or embrace you and keep you fully in the moment, today we go with the first of the two as we voyage deep into the forests of Mesoamerica as we find ourselves on the Mayan Trails.

The Maya have always fascinated me, but as I am on the other side of the globe, any journeying into their civilization will have to be done vicariously, and this single from the artist certainly does the job. Qureshi has been on fire recently, it seems she has re-found her muse and once again it shows on this rustic offering, we can even imagine her performing whilst on the trail, the song is so realistically manifested.

Michelle’s performance on Mayan Trails holds that mysterious vibe, whilst the minor chord structures and notes add a deeper flavour to the track which is simply bathed in the moment of a trip to perhaps an ancient temple. The harmonics and subtle flow of this composition create a piece that whilst tranquil, manifests a compelling musical narrative to thoroughly enjoy. Nothing other than a successful trip on the singles chart should be the outcome here for Mayan Trails by Michelle Qureshi.
