Real World Records is a record label started in 1989 by Peter Gabriel to record and produce world music.


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 Real World Studios. The label is distributed in the US by Ryko.


Artists who have recorded on the label include:
