“On Where The Mermaids Are Maryama calmly sings with a hushed, Sade-like smoothness against a soft-jazz/tropical beat, percussion, and piano notes. A Middle Eastern twang from the stringed instrument called a Sehtar enters near the end of the track, winding with a burnished glow through Maryama’s sinuously drawn out vocals.”- Jen Dan, indie music review

``I would liken her to Sade because of the way she uses her voice, which us under exquisite control. Sade’s voice is silky and sensuous, as is Maryama’s, but the latter tosses in a classical flavor that differentiates the two divas. I can hardly wait for her to record and release a full album. To that end, I will certainly keep an eye out for it``- Randy Radic, HUFFINGTON POST (Mar 04, 2017)

``Hearkening back to music by ’90s stalwarts the Cranberries, songstresses like Dido and Natalie Merchant, and tonal wonders such as Enya, Maryama crafts a sound that’s overdue for a big comeback. Her new track, “Where the Mermaids Are” has the power to captivate its listeners much like a mermaid’s siren call. It haunting resonance combines Western ambient music with her native instrumentation for a sonic experience that’s a perfect soundtrack for meditation or for simply taking some “me time``- Allison Boron, PopDose
