“India has some of the richest music cultures in the world and artists are eagerly looking for opportunities to share their creativity with audiences around the globe. We encourage artists to stay independent and to access our world-class promotion tools to help them propel their music careers. Education is a top priority for CD Baby. Our mission in India is to simplify the process for artists and composers, and to give them the practical steps and information they need to successfully market and sell their music.” said Heli Del Moral, VP of International Development at CD Baby.
Tracy Maddux, CEO of AVL Digital, parent company to both CD Baby and DashGo, added: “India is a huge, vibrant market and presents a great opportunity for CD Baby. We believe that Ritnika is the right person to help us grow and learn about what artists and labels need in this diverse, intensely creative country. This is a very exciting expansion for us that marks our commitment and belief in the future of the indie music market in India.
