about

Melange seamlessly blend music from North Africa, the Middle East and Mediterranean, incorporating elements of jazz improvisation and dynamic arrangements.

The group was formed by cellist Shirley Smart, who spent 10 years in Jerusalem studying and playing the musics of the region.

Melange is a true reflection of modern cosmopolitanism, comprising musicians from Greece, Spain,
Morocco, Iraq, Italy and the UK.

Via Maris presents a mixture of traditional repertoire and original compositions.
