About ALIA PROD

 

ALIA Prod is Alison Loerke International Artists, a boutique booking and management company dedicated to promoting world class performing artists. 

The mission of ALIA Prod is to bring the excitement of emerging and legacy artists to North American audiences. We provide cultural engagement via performances, workshops and residencies. We connect our artists with local communities to further understanding and appreciation of our diverse humanity.

ALIA Prod was founded in 1997 by Alison Loerke, an artist's representative with over 25 years experience in the performing arts.  Alison has worked as a program specialist for Arts International, publicist for the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, house manager for Celebrate Brooklyn, and educator at the American Museum of Natural History. Through these diverse experiences she developed her passion for connecting musicians to new audiences, and forging people-to-people cultural connections between North America and the rest of the world.

ALIA Prod is proud to have introduced The Super Rail Band, Boubacar Traore, Andy Palacio, Novalima, Paulo Flores, and most recently, Mokoomba, to North American audiences. Other international artists whose tours she has booked include Ensemble Tartit, Aurelio, Issa Bagayogo, and jazz icons Fred Hersch and Jack DeJohnette.

We work with the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, Chicago Dept. Of Cultural Affairs, and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis along with other performing arts centers. Our artists have appeared at a multitude of festivals and venues, including the Apollo Theater, The Monterey Jazz Festival, Central Park Summerstage, New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, Festival Internationale de Louisiane, Edmonton Folk Festival, Vancouver Jazz Festival, Montreal Jazz Festival, and others.
