Terra Media is a multicultural artistic project with the purpose of producing original music, diffusing and showcasing traditional and contemporary styles from the Mediterranean Basin.
Terra Media is also a platform for multidisciplinary artistic activities and lends itself as a potential partner for the cultural exploration of the artistic expressions of the Mediterranean.
It is 2013 when pianist, composer, and producer Giovanni Ceccarelli first thinks about this project. An Italian musician resident in France, Giovanni spends the years from 2010 until 2014 in the Middle East, first in Damascus then in Beirut. In the Lebanese capital, Giovanni meets drummer Paolo Orlandi, in Beirut since 2013. From the collaboration of the two musicians, the idea of an ensemble involving artists exclusively from countries of the Mediterranean Basin begins taking form. This ensemble is now the core of the Terra Media project.
