Since 25 years alba KULTUR has been working as an independent office, specialising in global music cultures ranging from classical non-Western music and orally transmitted traditional music and folk to comtemporary hybrid and creolised fusion and crossover projects that all express and actualise the concept of cultural diversity in a globalised world.
Our work is based on the philosophy that music is a fundamental human expression that creates and supports social and cultural identity. Dealing with both, one's own music and with foreign music cultures helps to establish openness, tolerance, respect, self-awareness, sensitivity and the ability to give and receive criticism - all valuable criteria for a peaceful living together and the development of a vibrant civil society. We primarily work in the following areas:
- artist management
- curatorial work
- concept development and consulting
- cultural education
- music and sustainable development
- cultural political commitment
In the season 2016 / 2017 the Frankfurt Old Opera House starts a new serie with four world music concerts at Mozartsaal, their chamber music hall.
Klangkosmos NRW is the global music network of local cultural organsations in more than 20 cities in North Rhine-Westphalia.
