About us

La Candela has been founded in 2001 by Reinhard Allgaier. Starting as a promoter for local concerts and festivals in the Rhein-Ruhr area, La Candela established itself as a globally operating artist, booking and promotion agency in indie, jazz, classical, pop and world music.

We book and promote local concerts as well as tours and shows throughout Europe. Besides the current “artist roster”:, we have worked with the following artists among others:

Africando, Aufgang, BaBa ZuLa, Fanfare Ciocarlia, Femi Kuti, Francesco Tristano, Gabriela Montero, Ghostpoet, Kimmo Pohjonen, Kroke, Mina Tindle, Miriam Makeba, Polish Chamber Orchester, Rainbow Arabia, Seasick Steve, Taraf de Haidouks, The Aggrolites, The Skatalites, Tamikrest, Tinariwen, Zuco 103

La Candela works with artists who break these boundaries, artists who rile up the crowd with the quality and identity of their live-performance. Musically stereotyped thinking is far from our minds and we are always open to discovering something new.

Besides booking concerts, we at La Candela support the artist and promoters with PR service and advice as well as advertising and promotion efforts. Using our worldwide network of record labels and media partners (print, radio, TV, online), we help realise local, regional and international marketing.


We currently have no open positions.
