A journey around the Mediterranean - the Inner sea of the Greeks, the Mare Nostrum of the Romans, the Bahr El Abiadh of the Arabs.

Bedoui and company travel the seas from Italy to Algeria, from Tunisia to Greece, from Marseilles to Sicily, in search of sounds from the tradition they can make their own.
