Mediterranean Ambassadors Music Experience MAME

MAME is a musical reality, born from the encounter of Irina Solinas and the Silk Road Ensemble: a musical collective, formed by exceptional artists from all over the world, winner of the Grammy Award as Best World Music Album, in 2016
Following the success of the event “Ambassadors of Silkroad's Global Musician Workshop”, Irina Solinas is launching a new musical network, combining the contemporary experience of global, multicultural interaction of people, sounds and music, with the safeguard of classical traditions ­ the foundation of every accomplished musician's career.

MAME holds in its name the seeds of four stories, that led to one encounter.

A place – where
Mediterranean: musicians meet along the roads of the Mediterranean, from Latin Mediterraneus: “Midland”, a physical place, the middle ground between East and West.

The characters ­ who
Ambassadors: ambassadors of ideas of sound and melodies. Coming from different musical backgrounds and far away places, each one with his or her peculiar voice. A concoction of timbres, that is bound to impress, in the ear of the listener, a unique musical trace.

The experience ­ what

Music: musical footprint. What takes place during each unique encounter is an exchange of original sheet music, composed especially for the occasion, and of material coming from a traditional background, that belongs to the folk­lore of each peculiar instrument and its country. Every musical piece is then re­arranged and embraced, through broad structures, somewhere in between jazz and world music.

The motif that moves the scene ­ why
Experience: share your experience and live an experience. To give, to open up the boundaries, organizing, during each event, also workshops, lectures and jam sessions that will bring together musicians, enthusiasts, critics, and new ideas. To take action, to involve the audience in an active, aware, listening adventure, to enjoy music, to assimilate new sounds, through an “open stage” involvement.

MAME is a true and prestigious musical and sound platform, located at the center of the
Mediterranean, meant as a confluence, a point of convergence, of East and West.
