Pianocean is an artistic and sailing project, led by the piano and the voice of Marieke Huysmans Berthou. Pianocean aims to be an ambassador for free international culture, lived and shared across the seas.

Sailor, piano player and sonwriter, she sails from port to port to give concerts.
When each concert takes place, the piano is lifted from the back cabin to the deck by a customised system which transforms the deck into a stage.

Pianocean is a moving place of interaction and creativity designed for cultural and human worldwide collaboration.

Pianocean is a journey for cultures and heritage. At every port of call, the pianist spends time with the local population sharing their experiences and stories. She records a new album every year in the “floating studio” of Lady Flow.

PIANOCEAN – The film

“Pianocean is a cry from the heart that tells us that it is possible

to make our dreams come true…”
