Camerata Mediolanense is an ensemble of musicians established in Milano (Italy) in 1994. Their music can be classified as darkwave/neoclassical, with folk elements.

Head of the project is diplomated classical composer Elena Previdi, other members come from different trainings and musical experiences: percussionist and singer Trevor and percussionist Manuel Aroldi come from the post-punk scene, while former lead singer Daniela Bedeski has a past in folk music.

Camerata Mediolanense literally means "group of chamber musicians from Milano" ("Mediolanense" means "from Mediolanum", the ancient name for Milano). Their music is composed according to the traditions and history of Italy and Europe's classical and folk music, using martial percussions, sublime voices, keyboards and electronic devices.
