Meeting Points

The greek name “Mesogaia” or middle earth refers to an interaction of different musical identities, balcanic and mediterranean.

The artistic result is the intersection between the individual musical paths of the musicians.

The sound and the traditional polyrhythm of Greece, of Turkey, of the Arab countries are intertwined with jazz improvisations, Neapolitan and Rebetika melodies, ecstatic frenzy of the gypsy-balcanic styles and the contemporary musical language.
