Indie Music Label has today announced its admission into PPL India.
The agreement allows PPL to collect public performance and radio broadcast licensing royalties on behalf of the Indie Music label. The deal will also allow PPL license holders to play popular tracks of the music label in public.
Commenting on their induction into PPL, Naushad Khan, MD, Indie Music Label said “PPL India has come a long way with regard to transparency and efficiency. We’re certain that this partnership will help us monetise our public performance and music licensing rights. The additional revenue we receive will help us phenomenally in producing more great songs that people can enjoy.”
Indie Music Label is known for associations with musicians like Darshan Raval, Ash King, Amit Mishra, and Nakash Aziz. Indie music is widely acclaimed to hold its ground in the Bollywood music industry. The deal will help Indie Music Label to go a long way in helping their artist’s monetise their work. This will result in an increase in their revenues substantially, given the popularity of many of their tracks.
Speaking about the development, Mr. Hari Nair, Chief Digital Officer of PPL India said “Indie songs and artists are the heart and soul of the music industry and many legendary performers started out as independent musicians. We’re privileged to be associated with a label as radical as Indie Music Label and we’re certain that the additional revenue we help them generate will go a long way in helping them in their mission of bringing independent artists into the mainstream.”
PPL India is the country’s largest public performance rights organisation. It represents the interests of 300+ music labels. PPL India boasts of more than 1.5 million international and 0.8 million domestic songs in their repertoire. With the addition of Indie Music Label, PPL’s foothold into the alternative and art music scene will expand.
