The music of the Mediterranean is as manifold as the countries, people and cultures surrounding it. The sea in the centre brings them together and like boats sailing from coast to coast, songs travel from soul to soul. Greece is nearby in the grico music of Southern Italy, right next door Turkey offers the orient's spicy aroma. There are Moorish sounds in Spain and arabesque decorations in Portugal's fado, which belongs to the cultural force field of the Mediterranean family. And when plucking instruments from all countries mix their sounds time and again yet always differently, one thing is certain: music knows no borders.
