about gülbaba

Gülbaba Music & Artist Management is an offbeat, spirited, tailor-made management, booking, tour and event company founded in 2011, currently based in Istanbul. We, at Gülbaba, work as a managing and booking agency with a steady focus on a carefully selected catalogue reflecting our musical DNA, made up of both local and international musicians from the Anatolian Psychedelic, Traditional Turkish, Experimental Rock, New Folk and Jazz music scene.


From its very inception, Gülbaba Music was driven by the unimpeded love and passion we feel for music and culture in general, and the abovementioned genres in particular. Over the years, we have represented and supported local voices in over 50 countries across 6 different continents. We also had the privilege to host outstanding musicians such as Manu Chao, Marcus Miller, Noga Erez, Lola Marsh, Chinese Man, Taiwan MC and Tamikrest, in our home base, Istanbul.


Grounded in our expanding roster, featuring such outstanding artists as Melike Şahin, Hey! Douglas, Mode XL, and, of course, the living legend Selda Bağcan; and exceptional projects whose production we undertake and supervise, such as Air Anatolia, and Sound Ports Festival to name a few, we keep working in order to make our dreams come true: carry the sounds from Istanbul all over the world, embrace collaborations, and spread the love and good vibes across the planet.
