Mai Leisz: Skies Above Salkantay
Mai Leisz has just released a fantastic new single called “Skies Above Salkantay,” which features guitarist Mike Landau, drummer Gary Novak, and her husband Greg Leisz on pedal steel and guitar. The track is accompanied by a beautiful music video.
“‘Skies Above Salkantay’ is a song which I wrote with my husband Greg Leisz after our trip to Peru last fall,” she shares. “Our 3-week vacation was my birthday present to Greg since I knew he had been dreaming about seeing Machu Picchu, one of the seven wonders of the world. So I made it happen… and this song is inspired by the magic we saw, felt and experienced on our 4-day hike over the Peruvian highlands, cloud forests and tropical Amazon jungle to Machu Picchu.”
