(CelebrityAccess) – After 42 successful years as an independent World Music label, ARC Music Productions International has joined forces with Naxos Music Group, following its acquisition by Naxos Rights Europe.
Under the terms of the new agreement, Naxos Music Group, which has been distributing the ARC label digitally worldwide and physically in several key markets for some time already, will provide funding to ARC enabling the label to sign more artists, increase its number of releases, and strengthen its worldwide presence.
Julia Beyer will continue leading the label as Head of A&R and ED of the company with Chris Tomsett as D/ED Operations overseeing the day to day operations of the company.
Established in 1976, ARC Music’s main goal has always been to preserve the ethnic music of world cultures and to spread traditional and original music with a positive message. Naxos, which was established in 1987, is one of the world’s leading classical music groups, and currently operates the only dedicated world music subscription streaming platform, Naxos Music Library/World, which offers access to more than 12,000 albums through a dedicated search engine.
