Somewhere in a little club in Hamburg circa 1976, a Bolivian band called Los Rupay played their first European gig. The promoter, a young guy called Horst Tubbesing marvelled at their pan pipes and charangos and wondered why they had no LPs on sale for the rapturous audience to buy? Horst immediately remedied the situation by forming ARC Music, initially selling dubplates from the back of his Citroen 2CV! Subsequently, since the 70s, no corner of the world has remained untouched by the hand of this brilliant, independent label, fuelled by passion for every kind of genre, and driven by expertise & dedication to reach the remotest musicians on Planet Earth. Listen to ARC’s PR guru, Angie Lemon, and A&R man, Diz Heller, on this AWIL, playing some of the choicest tracks from the back-catalogue! Hear about the rewards they’ve encountered being part of ARC’s family-orientated team, now led by Horst’s daughter, Julia Beyer, and some of the challenges faced through four decades of continual change in an industry not for the faint-hearted. Plus, the ultimate challenge of AWIL’s annual festive quiz set by London Gypsy Orchestra’s Norman Drucker!
