MIDDLE EASTERN ARTIST AGENCY
WHAT WE OFFER
OLMUSIC focuses on the promotion of artists who contribute to the diversity of Middle Eastern music. No matter the musical genre (A cappella, Jazz, Balkan, Yemenite, Ladino, Arabic, Israeli, cantorial music, Jewish) we bring to your festivals, clubs, communities and holidays the most promising artists with various ethnic backgrounds from the musical spectrum of the Middle East.
WHY US ?
OLMUSIC promises to you a unique solution through a unique combination. Originally from two completely different home countries we took the best from both sides to create a music agency which fits exactly to our own background, connecting Orient with Occident.
In the Middle Eastern way we work closely together with our artists in a personal manner and believe in each one of them. We consult with them the promotional part and designing of the shows, their marketing, the appearance on the stage and the wanted message. Our professional service combines Oren's unique Middle Eastern "straightforwardness" with Lena's Western European organization. Through our experience in promotional management and vast researches of music venues (clubs, festivals, Jewish institutions, cultural institutions and embassies in all the world) we achieved to have an incredible database of contacts in the today's music scene. On top of this we travelled ourselves as choreographers half of the world and built an art network of both consistence and quality. We can offer you unique solutions, rare musical genres and brilliant artists with unparalleled creations.
