“We went from radio to TV / Now we're going from LP to CD / Don’t be afraid to try something new / I can help you with the brand new technology / If you can help me with the age old philosophy / Together there's so much we can do”
- India Arie (“Better People”)
We believe in:
Engaging media and technology to inspire and advance culture, crossing the boundaries of time and space.
Going beyond traditional documentary, reissues and remastering, pushing innovative interpretations of creative work by bringing our unique roster of new voices to bear on the past.
Showcasing the evolution of the creative process over time.
Building value from stories to promote current work
In the age of technology and the global movement to highlight hidden voices, content is queen. Content spurs activism. Content is currency. Yet as creatives, we often amass years of valuable content - the stories in our archives - waiting to be unearthed, appreciated, and utilized.
Our speciality is creating radical reimaginings, reinventions, and transhistorical fusions for the future of 5G and culturally responsive storytelling to build value from your existing content.
Our passion is remixing archival material to inspire the future.
Arbo Radiko (“Tree Root”) is an archival storytelling production studio working with today’s bravest creatives to curate, remix and produce multimedia content, connecting untapped work with today’s diverse audiences. We uncover, leverage and make relevant valuable stories from the archives of visionary creative organizations, legacy artist estates, brands, media companies, record labels, publishing houses, museums, cultural and educational institutions, celebrity figures and pioneers in music, film, dance, theater, literature, culinary and visual art.
Our studio is made up of a global collective of diverse creative leaders across strategy, audio-visual content creation, archival science, arts, and activism. Together we deliver a one-stop solution built to your needs and budget.
We offer talks, individual insight sessions and a 6-month workshop accelerator on engaging a connective culture of storytelling tailored to creatives and creative groups.
Through our community offerings we illuminate the Arbo Radiko principles of remixing, reimagining and reinspiring by highlighting innovative archival storytelling work in creative fields.
