This week on Digital Music Trends a special show focusing on the Brazilian Music Industry. It was an absolute pleasure chat about the state and evolution of the music market in Brazil with Luciana Pegorer, founder of label Delira Musica and Managing Director of ABMI – the Brazilian Independent Music Association – Marcelo Soares, the CEO of Som Livre – the biggest independent music label in Brazil – and Robert Singerman, head of the Brazil Music Exchange in North America.
We cover a huge variety of topics including the evolution of the Brazilian music market over the past 20 years, the impact of digital services and the different approaches seen so far in terms of commercial partnerships, licensing local catalogue to new international services, collection societies, the importance of music videos, the importance of YouTube for digital music revenues and the current indie battle around its streaming service, the impact of the World Cup and the upcoming 2016 Olympic Games on the local music industry.
I really hope you enjoy this show, it was really great fun preparing it and researching the Brazilian market.
Have a fantastic week and ’till next time!
