Hive Open Mic

Week 45: February 14 - 20, 2021

A virtual stage presenting live music

English: Dear friends and members of the Hive Open Mic community, I have two announcements. First, this week begins a new tradition of inviting one outstanding participant to declare the weekly theme. I personally feel our themes are meaningful because they unite us in the present moment, sharing the same current, and so I feel this is a real honor to let the community make the call. This week's theme is selected by last week's "Spotlight Artist": @edwardstobia.

💛 🌟

Second, I'm happy to say that last week's event drew in ~40 live music entries — that's a record! In order to sufficiently listen to each entry, encourage every artist, and curate the weekly highlights, I'm seeking some team members to help with our community as it grows. Does that sound fun to you? If so, let me know your vision of co-hosting or moderating, or generally supporting this community. You can DM me on Discord: cabelindsay#6779, or else comment below. This is your community just as much as it is mine.

💃 🕺

Our Hive Open Mic community is 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 by celebrating songs with an international audience. Our event stands for global harmony.

✌️ 🤘

Spanish: Estimados amigos y miembros de la comunidad de Hive Open Mic, tengo dos anuncios. Primero, esta semana comienza una nueva tradición de invitar a un participante destacado a declarar el tema semanal. Personalmente, siento que nuestros temas son significativos porque nos unen en el momento presente, compartiendo la misma corriente, por lo que siento que es un verdadero honor dejar que la comunidad haga el llamado. El tema de esta semana es seleccionado por el "Artista destacado" de la semana pasada: @edwardstobia.

En segundo lugar, me complace decir que el evento de la semana pasada atrajo ~40 entradas de música en vivo, ¡eso es un récord! Para escuchar lo suficiente cada entrada, alentar a cada artista y seleccionar los aspectos más destacados semanales, estoy buscando algunos miembros del equipo para ayudar con nuestra comunidad a medida que crece. ¿Te suena divertido? Si es así, déjeme saber su visión de ser co-anfitrión o moderador, o en general, apoyar a esta comunidad. Puedes enviarme un mensaje de texto en Discord: cabelindsay#6779, o comentar a continuación.
Esta es tu comunidad tanto como la mía.

You can help support Hive Open Mic by acknowledging the creative spirit that is given so abundantly. Let's reward musicians by voting and commenting directly on music posts, showing our applause as if we're listening in a pub, a coffee shop, or concert hall. Tipping is greatly appreciated. These artists enliven Hive through their humming and buzzing!


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 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.
