The most common meaning attributed to the term ‘Mediator’, which is the starting point of the study, has almost a legal meaning such as preventing disagreements, conflicts and bringing the parties together. However, in the case of ‘cultural media-tion’, there is no need to have the abovementioned opposite poles or positions. It would not be wrong to think of this as a communication model, define it in the most general sense as the interaction by mediation between two cultures. This study aimed to discuss the trumpet player Ibrahim Maalouf, who started his music life as the ‘other’ and became ‘us’ as a cultural mediator and reveal his compatibility with cultural mediation parameters.
