Hive Open Mic 78
October 3-9, 2021
Global harmony is our mission. World peace is our vision. Our community's open mic event attracts 100+ musicians and thousands of listeners each week. We provide a haven for creative expression and genuine connection. All are welcome. Every contributor can be proud of the fact we are building a live music movement, sharing songs with an international audience.
Each week, our community recognizes a Spotlight Artist. This is a person who shares artistry and personality, offering musical performance and generous listening to fellow musicians. Our virtual song circle upholds the pattern of a traditional open mic event, respecting those who listen twice and talk once.
For the 78th week of Hive Open Mic, we will explore the following theme: "Amante." In English, this means: "Lover." This theme is selected by Spotlight Artist: @franciscodesousa, who is a brilliant guitarist and song carrier from our beloved nation of Venezuela. Everyone is encouraged to share the collective current as we express and connect through: Amante.
This week's Hive Open Mic theme is: “Amante.” This is a pressure-free invitation, encouraging us to explore new territory together as artists and share a common ground as a community. Musicians always have full freedom to bring whatever music feels inspired in the moment. Here's a timeline, for anyone wishing to look back, be present, or prepare future entries.

Show your support by engaging with the musicians. The greatest gift you can give to an artist is your attention. For this reason, we humbly ask that you offer some friendly words. You can reward musicians by offering applause as if we're in a pub, a coffee shop, or concert hall. Your friendly comment might be a vital voice that gives a musician the wings to fly, or the gills to dive deep!
In the Hive Open Mic community, every week is an inspiring musical journey. Here, talented musicians bring their gifts to the virtual stage, reaching around the world. Listeners gain human connection on levels of heart and mind, including people of various cultures and languages. This is the harmonizing power of music.
Gratitude goes to the originators of Hive, who planted the seeds for us to grow and flourish here. Gratitude goes to the @OCD Incubation Program and other community cultivators, allowing newcomers to find their niches, and comfort zones. Gratitude goes to all the people who share their energy here, helping each other to thrive.
