It is an unlikely and beautiful phenomenon that New Orleans has become a place where musicians who seek to play traditional music have found a home–not only jazz, but also Americana, and folk music from Bulgaria, Africa, Cuba, and more. Milo Records was born out of the need of these musicians for technical assistance and business management–a need unmet by the mainstream music industry. At Milo Records we promote traditional, folk-influenced music, and provide listeners with a sample of a city where old music of all kinds is still good–be it Country, Cajun, Folk, Old-Time, Honky Tonk, and even Balkan music. Oh and of course we also love traditional jazz.
Milo Records is named after a famous musical dog who is fun, playful, smart, strong, loyal and protective – qualities that influence our philosophy in music representation. At Milo Records, you’ll find artists who cherish and re-interpret the work of legends but also express their own original songs in a traditional-influenced form. Acoustic music you can dance to, and string instruments that make you smile – that is our big easy belief.
