Hive Open Mic ( #openmic ) is a global community celebrating live music on Hive. Each week is a new event, encouraging musicians to share songs with an international audience.

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.

77: Joie de Vivre ---> 78: Amante ---> 79: Mirrors on Earth

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.


Join in. Enjoy!

My first entry for Hive Open Mic Week-78, I would like to cover a Bon Jovi's song, called "Always". This is a very popular romantic song all the time. This song related with a theme in this week, "Amante." In English, this means: "Lover."


Oh it is so cool to hear from you. Your musical talents are immense. I'm grateful for your admirable way of conducting yourself right from the beginning. Thanks for being here, carrying a hit by Bon Jovi. Excellent!

Saludos y muchas bendiciones para todos, dejo mi entrada de la semana #78. Un abrazo @cabelindsay ❤️


Hello and welcome to this weeks Open Mic Gathering of amazing HIVE talent.
It's been such a long time since I posted in the community, so it's a pleasure to be back.


Thanks to @cabelindsay & @mipiano and the rest of the Open Mic team for your support of musicians around the globe.

Just delightful. Yes, I wonder how long it's been? A year? You're back and as excellent as ever. Thank you for jumping in again.

More like 2 years!
It's great to be back with a new album too!
Keep being amazing my friend.

I think in the time I've known you, I've always seen you as a romantic, by nature. I relate with you in that. I feel you have a very special way of expressing yourself musically in the romance vibe.

Creo que en el tiempo que te conozco, siempre te he visto como un romántico, por naturaleza. Me relaciono contigo en eso. Siento que tienes una forma muy especial de expresarte musicalmente en el ambiente romántico.

Hola @jpulido0306 me encanta esa canción. Me hace recordar mi adolescencia cuando tenía por costumbre ver la luz de Luna..Es hermosa. Te felicito buen tema. Saludos

Qué bien. Muchas gracias @elinorrg.

Hello this is my participation for this week, I hope you enjoy it!

Hey Folks this week I'm playing a song called "Aint No Ash Will Burn" by Walt Aldridge...

Glad you're playing this song. I remember when you introduced it to me a long time ago. Would you say you can see noticeable progress in your videos, from one take to another?

I tried singing it with the capo on the 6th fret this time , normally I would play it capoed on the 5th.Lately I've been trying to sing all my songs in a higher key than I was previously able to.

Im not sure if that's progress really ,I just enjoy singing the song.

I definitely think it's progress to explore new territory and stretch ourselves musically. I am totally with you in this. In fact, I just attended a live music event tonight and I got invited on stage to play a song. I sang this new song an octave higher than I'd ever voiced it before, and wow, it took on a whole new energy and vibrancy. I feel the same is true for you.

Excelente tema para la edición número 78. Ya hice mi canción, y se llama AMANTE DE LA MÚSICA, en tiempo de Copla-joropo, para que conozcan de qué se trata esta variante musical venezolana. Bendiciones de Dios para todos los músicos, musicólogos y "Tocantautores".

Por cierto que, TOCANTAUTOR es quien toca, compone y canta a la misma vez.

Yay! I greatly look forward to your entry. Your music feels so resonant with me, and it is a real gift to listen.

¡Hurra! Espero con mucha ilusión su entrada. Tu música se siente tan resonante para mí, y es un verdadero regalo escucharla.

El tema de esta semana, también es genial 😍 me encanta,

Owww this week's prompt is so frisky...Amante means someone you are in a romantic relationship with that you are not married to?

Um, you might be right about that. I'm new at the Spanish language. Personally, in my interpretation, it translates to "Lover," which could also mean a romantic relationship with a spouse, or yes, perhaps, a frisky fling with a total stranger. :)

Lol...ok noted...

Hi friends @ebingo and @cabelindsay! They are both right. Because "Amantes" is about two lovers, be it a legal or clandestine love, hehe...


Magnifico hay mucha tela que cortar con esa propuesta "AMANTE" digo presente.

Oh yes, definitely. I think this is the first time we've explored subject matter such as this as a theme. I'm excited to see what shows up for us.

Oh, sí, definitivamente. Creo que esta es la primera vez que exploramos un tema como este como tema. Estoy emocionado de ver lo que aparece para nosotros.

Hola queridos amigos la tematica de esta semana Hive open mic week #78 es fascinante, "Amante" así como cada semana, nos encontramos en este espacio para aprender y vivir. Aquí estare nuevamente con todos, gracias.

We're starting strong. I think your theme selection is perfect! It's the first time we've explored the topic of sexuality, and it feels like a great opportunity to open some new doors. I'm excited for the entries I'm hearing so far.

Empezamos con fuerza. ¡Creo que tu selección de temas es perfecta! Es la primera vez que exploramos el tema de la sexualidad y se siente como una gran oportunidad para abrir nuevas puertas. Estoy emocionado por las entradas que estoy escuchando hasta ahora.
