TuneCore starts operations in Latin America under the direction of Bruno Duque

Believe owned DIY distribution platform TuneCore has started operations across Latin America.

TuneCore LATAM will support artists in Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, Peru, Chile, Brazil, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Spain.

The move follows the company’s launch of operations in Africa last month.

TuneCore LATAM is led by Bruno Duque, who began his career at Sony Music in Los Angeles in the Latin Music Division before moving to other areas of the industry.

Prior to joining TuneCore, he was Marketing Manager at iMusica, the leading digital content distributor in Latin America, where he focused on licensing and label relationships.

He has headed TuneCore Brazil for the past six months and will now expand his responsibilities to the wider region.

Duque reports to Faryal Khan-Thompson, Vice President International, who joined the company in December.

TuneCore distributes independent music to more than 150 digital stores and streaming services, including Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, Amazon Music, TikTok, Claro Musica, and Deezer.

The company now has eight fully localized websites and 13 language options, including Spanish, and claims it pays artists more than $ 1 million a day.

In December, the company confirmed it had crossed the milestone of paying a total of $ 2 billion to independent artists since it was founded 15 years ago.

TuneCore expanded to India, Russia and Brazil last year.

In connection with the announcement, TuneCore LATAM launched # ASÍdeIndependiente on the occasion of the company’s 15th anniversary earlier this year and is offering all independent artists a 25% discount on the distribution of a single or album with the code TUNECORELATAM in the first year.

“With TuneCore and Bruno on-site in LATAM, we can localize our activities and communicate with these artists to support them both locally and globally.”

Faryal Khan-Thompson, Vice President of International, said, “Independent music continues to gain market share worldwide.

“Latin America in particular has a lot of local artists who are popular in their own countries and have so much potential to appeal to audiences around the world.

“With TuneCore and Bruno on-site in LATAM, we can localize our activities and communicate with these artists to support them both locally and globally.”

“As digital music and streaming services continue to grow in LATAM, TuneCore stands ready to help independent artists create larger audiences and long, sustainable careers.”

Bruno Duque

Bruno Duque added: “Latin America is a region that is rich and diverse in music

“Whether it’s Puerto Rican reggaeton, Dominican merengue, Colombian cumbia or countless other genres, there is so much musical creativity in the region that it not only deserves to be heard by a wider audience, but also income for the artists.

“As digital music and streaming services continue to grow in LATAM, TuneCore stands ready to help independent artists create larger audiences and long, sustainable careers.”
