Mark Dieler, Latvian-based German-Italian from Ranco (Italy), has been working internationally since 1998, of which 10+ years spent on the African continent. Involved in numerous projects between hospitality and events he worked with both underground and top-tier artists and locations. Due to over a decade spent in Africa he has a particular interest in the continent and co-produces the stage Africa NOW! at Tallinn Music Week.
Partner of Berlin-based LONA Musik (booking for Cleveland Watkiss, Orchestra Voadora, Napalma and others) and in cooperation with JV-promotion (Balaklava Blues, Puuluup, and others) he continues booking and producing events.
With a strong belief in the power of cooperation, another current project is Cindy & Kate, a collaborative and trust-based informal network that brings together independent Baltic promoters, grassroots cultural spaces, and artists.
In cooperation with partners such as In Place of War he has managed artistic residencies in Zanzibar and Portugal with new projects getting developed in Sicily and Latvia.
