Specializing in Eastern European and Gypsy music, the label & publishing company was founded in the summer of 2002, with the intention of combining their existing experience and musical know-how into developing new artists. With a team in hand, the label began discovering, producing, releasing, publishing and distributing some of the freshest and most exciting Eastern European talent worldwide. The Berlin-based record label most notably evolved and grew around the incredible rise of the Romanian Gypsy brass band legends Fanfare Ciocarlia. Since then, over its 25-year life, the record has maintained its roots in Gypsy music from the Balkans, whilst also branching out in its curation to include musical releases spanning Eastern and Northern Europe, and North America, within genres including Electronica, Psych Folk, Rock, and Breaks.

All the Asphalt Tango Records releases are distributed worldwide and are available to mail order from www.asphalt-tango-shop.de.

Asphalt Tango Records also acts as a concert and live booking agency, and is considered one of the most important go-to destinations for Gypsy, Brass, and Balkan music. Successfully placing countless Roma talents from Eastern Europe on the focus of the world music live scene.
