Real World Records is a British record label started in 1989 by Peter Gabriel to record and produce world music, as well as his own releases.


The label grew up alongside the success of the WOMAD festivals and Peter Gabriel's exploration of music from other cultures, and helped push world music into the general public's consciousness during the 1990s. Many of the label's releases are recorded at Gabriel's Real World Studios, at Box, Wiltshire.

The label is distributed worldwide by Republic Records. There were previous distribution agreements with Caroline Records,[1] Ryko,[2] Virgin Records and Narada Productions.
