Horan Sounds is a live music production and booking agency based in Geneva (Switzerland), working on traditional music projects from Central Asia, Near Eastern countries and Iran.
what we do
Looking for original music projects, we provide them with professional support to facilitate their development process and offer them distribution opportunities in other countries.
We believe that musical traditions can change and be preserved at the same time.
That is what keeps traditions alive.
how we do
Our most important criteria to select projects are originality, smartness and honesty in the way they interpret the traditions. Projects are selected by a supervisory committee of specialised musicians and ethnomusicologists. After the selection, our technical and communication team will travel to the country to fully document the music projects. A local agent then would be appointed to sustain our relationship with the band. We see an integral part of our distribution work to be tour booking and producing projects in music festivals or other kind of event. We seek to be in permanent relation with the bands, follow creative process of their work and take part in their professional evolution. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
