About ALIA Prod:
ALIA Prod is Alison Loerke International Artists, a boutique booking and management company dedicated to promoting world class performing artists. We are committed to bringing musicians and audiences together via collaborative networks to celebrate and explore cultural diversity. We believe that each culture has something valuable to share with others, and in that process of connecting, we find the universality of the human experience, and ourselves reflected in the other.
Music is our medium. It is through the practise of music that we learn to listen deeply, trust implicitly, and commit to showing up. Music is often a visceral experience, it soothes our soul, gives us hope, sparks our imagination, and invites us to wild self-expression. Music is powerful, and thus we face it with humility.
In organizing tours and events that celebrate music and culture, we acknowledge and are grateful for the contributions of critical partners in bringing these tours to fruition. We recognize these tours come together through the efforts of many individuals and collaborating partners, and we deeply appreciate the team-work that is necessary to make a successful tour. Our intent is to collaborate with generosity of spirit, respect and empathy for cultural differences, and reciprocity of goodwill in order to create a safe space for all to gather together.
