Special thanks to @meno for help judging the contest this week. Great job.

Steemit Open Mic is not about winning or losing, it's about building a connections on Steemit through music. Watching the collaborations happen online between musicians who played and met on Steemit Open Mic is very rewarding and many of the people who play and post earn some nice rewards for playing a song.

For many, it's easier to get some Steem in your tip jar by playing for Steemit Open Mic than it is to play music on the street.

Steemit Open Mic Week 104 El Molino Original Song --- by @pechichemena

Pechiche has been on fire lately! Despite this being a product of a short poem inspired by the various muses that enable a song to come to life, “El Molino” can just as easily translate into a song of many meanings. The production value, execution, melodies, and vocal harmonies are splendid! This composition amongst many others, is a keeper for sure, Pechiche! - @passion-ground

I often ignore pechi's entries, and honestly, as much as I do so because I want to be fair to everyone, its hard for me to ignore this little masterpiece and feel like I'm doing things the right way. I'm not alone in the opinion that this song is a superb example of his work and talent, and the harmonies are just out of this world. - @meno

"Pechi your songs and productions are so sweet and so clean and you are always a blessing to listen to, just beautiful as always. mwah " - @soundlegion

You really create memorable moments with your music bro. You pour your all into your performances and take the details of musicality and intention to its limitations. I feel like I am watching a blissful ending to a cinematic movie and your song is the perfect closing soundtrack to a wonderful story told as the credits rise up on the screen. This has a romantic lining and poetic feel to it, and really reaches the heart. Great original by far, and a wonderful gem to share on our 2 year anniversary. Thank you for another hit, always looking forward to your music. - @verbal-d

This is another spectacular example of your phenomenal talents, truly just a stunning song and performance - those harmonies are breathtaking man, you just have so much skill and ability it cannot be contained. - @krystle

2nd Place

You won 40 Steem

Steemit Openmic Week 104! “Steemit Open Mic Check” an original by me --- by @shookriya

With his low-key creative genius, Shook surprises us yet again with a special tribute to the two-year anniversary of Open-Mic. Quite honestly, rap was one of the last things I expected from Shook, however, “Steemit Openmic Check” is simply brilliant! From the crafty lyrics to the various layers of a Shook-styled jazzified-funk, his rap and groove captivate the listener throughout. The production value, percussion, vocals, and entertainment value are quite rich. The haunting horns offer a unique and melodramatic finishing touch to the entire piece. - @passion-ground

One of the grooviest, trippiest things I've had the pleasure to enjoy on this contest or more accurately said on this platform in general. Shook is somewhat of a little musical genius, but you would not know that from his humble nature. - @meno

"So you have hit my impressed button a few times, but this was out of the box so much I just have to love you after this, I was both amused and grooved at the same time, your bars cracked me right up! flow mate really flow "It'll never go away" we so need to collab! Talent Alert, may have been goofy but this had flavor" - @soundlegion

3rd Place

You won 26 Steem

Azul Trilu Mia Djavan Or Steemit Open Mic Week 104 --- by @trilumia

"you guys are sooo cool , this was awesome, a full and free feel out in that tropical? island jungle? setting lol I was loving it all the way, I would love to have been apart of that looks like great fun, loved the sounds and all the instruments you guys nailed some vibes here" - @soundlegion

A collection of some of the most talented musicians from Brazil on Steem, What??? I really enjoyed this, very much actually. I mean, I've been listening to Ravi and Lisa forever and knew it was going to be good, but this was just excellent. Impossible to listen to this and not smile. - @meno

This was a very chill, laid back grooving reggae tune and Open Mic's very own @lisamalletart & @rhavi compliment the chemistry of this reggae band Trilumia, which also consists of @uriell and @faowna. You consistently bring us good vibes and positive feelings with this welcoming cover choice and you hardly disappoint with the energy you provide for us all. You are highly valued and respected for your passion for music and your consistently enjoyable performances. Thanks for another one and looking forward to your next entry, be it original or another cover. - @verbal-d

The harmonies really stood out as an amazing feature for me, the vocals generally were spot on - but it was the overall feel and vibe you all give off when performing, it's not only entertaining but relaxing. - @krystle

4th Place

You won 26 Steem

Steemit Open Mic Week 104 Can T Help Falling In Love By Dianakyv --- by @dianakyv

With brilliant accompaniment from @enriquemarval, Diana has done it once again! This time, she has taken a classic from Elvis, the King of Pop, and made it her very own. Diana’s vocal performance is simply wonderful. Her voice is pure, angelic, and replete with all manner of exquisite nuance and inflection. I can’t help falling in love with Diana week after week! - @passion-ground

"always so impressed with this voice, just ahhhh love it, so crystle and beautiful. Great quick runs on them pipes and again love the guitar accompany.. big love guys this is a big song to carry and you did it fantastic" - @soundlegion

Together there is a harmonic beauty to the sound you create, I have to say together you both compliment each others style and performance just incredibly - it is entrancing to behold, this was just truly exceptional. - @krystle

5th Place

You won 26 Steem

Steemit Open Mic Week 104 Smile By Mariajruizb --- by @mariajruizb

With extraordinary musical accompaniment from @danieledosd2, Maria’s vocal rendition of “Smile” is stunningly beautiful. The shift in pitch mid-way through was executed perfectly. The loving care and passion in which this classic is presented and performed had me smiling quite warmly through and through. - @passion-ground

Maria is a singer for singers. It's one of those vocal talents that makes the #openmic proud and I'm sure I speak for all judges on this one. From that first entry those months ago that blew us out of the water, her entries never fall short of fantastic. Beautifully performed. - @meno

Here's a screenshot of the prizes transferred to the winners this week.

Congratulation Everyone And Thanks For Playing Steemit Open Mic.

Thank you @luzcypher ,@passion-ground , @krystle , @verbal-d , @soundlegion and fakenews @meno for all the words and encouragement here.. :D that's the only reason I have kept sharing music over and over :) !

Much Love and Thank you once again


Eeeeeeeeeee graciaaaaaaas. Que noticia tan bella. Gracias al equipo de Openmic por permitirme estar en este 5to lugar. Saludos y felicito a todos los ganadores. ¡¡¡Celebremos primaaaaa!!!! ( @dianakyv)



Felicidades!!!! Congrats to all!!

So many congrats to @pechichemena for that 1st place spot.. and @shookriya and all the other winners and honorable mentions.. and to everyone at all who entered open mic. I just love all of you very much, even though never meeting! There is a bond between musicians I think, just a mutual respect kind of a spiritual connection that exists which is difficult to explain, but yet I know other musicians will understand what I'm saying.

Much love to all.. and to all the judges I know it is so hard to pick the winners out of so much talent. Mad respect for all of you as well.

And happy birthday!!



Who will not know you? If you are one of the most beautiful and sweet people in the entire platform ...


Well said, music has a strange power.
