For more than 30 years alba KULTUR has been working as an independent office, specialized in global music cultures ranging from classical non-Western music and orally transmitted traditional music and folk to contemporary hybrid and creolised fusion and crossover projects, that all express the concept of cultural diversity in a globalised world.

Our work is based on the philosophy, that music is a fundamental human expression. It creates and supports social and cultural identity. Dealing with musical diversity here and world wide help 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:

  • curatorial work
  • concept development and consulting
  • artist management consulting
  • cultural and music education
  • music and sustainable development
  • cultural political commitment
