Real World Records is a world music label, founded by WOMAD and Peter Gabriel to provide talented artists from around the world with access to state-of-the-art recording facilities and audiences beyond their geographic region.

The musical relationships generated at WOMAD festivals gave Real World Records confidence that something of this special spirit could be translated into a recording context.

Consequently, the Real World label has become renowned for bringing together musicians who share an empathy with music in general, rather than a shared cultural background.

Real World Records continues to push back the boundaries – with new artists to discover, new ways of recording, new meeting points.
