A colourful mix of music from the Mediterranean

The shores of the Mediterranean are the cradle of our mythology, philosophy and theology, but also the scene of intense conflict. Invasion and migration still colour the roots and the lives of those who live there. The three great monotheistic religions have also left their imprint. As always, via music, Jordi Savall reveals the links between all those people and cultures. In Mare nostrum he brings oral traditions - Sephardic, Berber, Greek, Arabic, Hebrew, Andalusian and his own Catalan - together with notated music from the Italian trecento and from Ottoman and Greek sources. Expect an eclectic mix of incredible richness, a wealth we can meanwhile also call our own.
