More free music

Timbuktu, a Swedish hip hop artist has exclusively released an album on P2P filesharing site Pirate Bay – as announced here.

It is incredible the lengths artists to which artists are going to find ways in which they can work around the music industry!

    My favourite example it the tecno brega movement in Belem do Para in Brazil. They release the music straight to the pirate street sellers and don’t make money from the CD or its distribution directly. There is a quote from Brasil in GoodcopyBdcopy: “there is amazing creativity it the business models in the creative communities of poor countries” (www.goodcopybadcopy.com)This film is worth watching.

    The music btw is tecno cheese – cheesy pop meets the merengue.
