Mediterranean Music – Start Here

Almost two years ago, I set out on an imaginary journey around the Mediterranean to explore the music and hear how such diverse cultures and peoples could influence each other and rely on each other for development in modern music. 

Mediterranean Music – Catalonia

Catalonia, do you have a lot of music; and even more diversity than I was expecting, and a lot of protest which I suppose I was expecting. And there is Arabic, African, Chanteuse, Jazz (of many types), electro, experimental, early medieval European and some decidedly uncharacteristically odd without category. And a 3 hour playlist.

Books for the journey

In my imaginary musical journey I decided to add some books to read along the way. I had already started to blog the journey and was re-reading A Colder War by Charles Cumming set in Istanbul when I had the idea. But where to start? Should the books be read at the time I am listening to the music of each country, or mix them up?
