Remembering Geoffrey Oryema

On Friday of last week we received the sad news of the death of Geoffrey Oryema. Geoffrey had a long association with Real World and WOMAD and performed alongside Peter many times throughout the years.

“I was very upset to learn of Geoffrey Oryema’s death.

Geoffrey was one of the original artists on our label and one of the most loved.

It feels as if we have lost one of our original family members and although Geoffrey went his own way in recent years we always felt he was a Real World artist.

A big man has gone and left a big hole but he leaves behind a lot of warmth and many beautiful and emotional songs.” - Peter Gabriel

New website for Real World Records

Real World Records has just launched a brand new website. We've been mining the archives to create a dynamic, colourful environment for visitors to engage with almost thirty years of releases.

There is a different story to tell about every album we've released on the label and every artist that we've worked with. We plan to tell them all in time! There is a wealth of photo and video footage that you will have never seen before and plenty more still to be added to the new website. It's definitely going to be a place you'll want to visit again and again.
