Folk Wisdom is a Berlin-based booking agency and record label born in 2014.
Before moving to Berlin, we have worked in Italy since 2003 as promoters, agents, festival curators and label managers.
During all these years we have had the privilege of collaborating with numerous artists we love and respect and with professional, passionate and open-minded promoters and festival curators.
Our research mainly aims at the discovery of innovative use of traditional, classical and modern musical instruments; creative mixtures of acoustic, electric and digital sources; and unconventional reworking of popular musical forms. Our privileged points of reference are Kosmische Musik, ambient, post-rock and fourth world music.
Our logo takes inspiration from Nicholas Roerich’s painting “and we do not fear”, part of the wonderful Sancta Series, representing two monks traveling in lonely and mysterious lands, but serenely, driven by the pleasure of their mission.
