Cross Culture Music Booking Netzwerk Promotion

Cross Culture Music | Booking. Promotion. Network.

Cross Culture Music – Booking Network Promotion is a network of musicians in the intercultural world music scene in Berlin. We organize experiences of a special kind and exciting and top-class encounters in the world language of music.

Cross Culture Music has been promoting the diversity and richness of global musical traditions since 1999. Our events are more than concerts; they are a lively exchange between artists and audiences, a celebration of cultural diversity. In our workshops, which are led by experienced musicians from all over the world, we offer space for creative learning and intercultural dialogue. We believe that music is a universal language that builds bridges and connects people regardless of their background. Our mission is to create an inclusive and enriching community through music that honors and celebrates the beauty and depth of diverse cultures.


It’s not without reason that the big names in the music industry and renowned and talented musicians are drawn to the Spree. Cosmopolitan musical pioneers, DJs and live musicians, emigrants from several generations and a wide variety of cultures meet here. They live and work together and here they create the greatest stylistic diversity in Europe.

In the middle of this lively network, Cross Culture Music emerged in 1999 and has allowed organizers and artists to take part in this evolutionary event ever since.

World language music

The creatives of the scene always try to be close to the pulse of musical life and open themselves to the traditions of the world as well as contemporary groove, modern technology and other forms of art. They focus more on the creative process than on following pigeonholes.

This means that there is a constant mix of divisions. It is precisely the differences that Berlin creates that create something very exciting and always new in the musical and human exchange.

Cross Culture Music

As a booking agency, Cross Culture Music – Booking Network Promotion represents and arranges professional multicultural projects that actively promote cultural exchange. We offered the artists a sophisticated organizational structure, advice, promotion, job and knowledge placement, studio and multimedia production.

They benefited from each other’s skills and relationships and presented themselves together on our internet platform, which had become an important portal for intercultural musicians in Europe.
