More than 70 countries and 5 continents around the world have hosted Mezzotono’s music making it the European vocal group with most number of Nations visited with their music.

The repertoire is performed without any instruments. Only five voices that imitating the sound of the real instruments and with a comical approach encourages audience participation in a nice and never pushy way.
Everybody will be always focused and attracted to the show because otherwise something would be visually "lost".
The aim is to cover many music styles songs that goes from jazz to pop, world music, bossa nova, mambo, tango, folklore, big band style or classic music showing that with the voices it is possible to do everything. Entertainment is really important because all the concert is offered with an universal key that is humor (of course speaking in English). In few words the Mezzotono show is a mix of Italian culture, entertainment and quality music.

For these reasons our audience is really different: from the typical listener of a music festival to the audience that never was in theater before, everybody can be attracted by the originality of the project.

Some of the best experience are: Dubai Jazz Festival with James Morrison and Jonathan Butler, 12 tours theatre in China, Cairo Opera House concert, Johor Bahru Jazz Festival, London Jazz Festival, Boston Green Festival in USA, Jornadas Musicales del Norte in Chile and Argentina, tours in 12 African nations.
In Italy many concerts in theaters and TV (RAI, Mediaset, Sky).

Starting from 2020 we also produce LEVANTE A CAPPELLA FESTIVAL with more than 4.000 people attending every year.

They wrote about us:
"Mezzotono gave a display of what the human voice can do" – Sundaynews (Tanzania)
"Mezzotono’s two performances were delightful and well received by the Penang Island Jazz Festival audience. A highly entertaining a-cappella act, Mezzotono also conducted a very interesting and informative workshop which the audience enjoyed. Their songs were mostly in Italian but Mezzotono has proved yet once again, music is a universal language and good music is always appreciated anywhere in the world! Mezzotono’s appearance at this year’s Penang Island Jazz Festival was indeed a wonderful experience for the audience and the festival was glad to have had them as part of its’ 9th edition’s program me.” Penang Jazz Festival Director (Malaysia)
