ABRAMUS Digital was created in 2006 to help publishers receive income from licensed digital rights from DSP’s in Brazil. According to the company, it represents more than six million works in Brazil from more than 200 international and domestic publishers, including BMG, Kobalt, Downtown and Rocking Gorillas, and distributed approximately 65 million Brazilian reals in 2019 and 2020.
“The goal is to help publishers of all sizes, knowing that their writers will receive their fair share from the exploitation of their rights in the digital market,” added Gustavo Gonzalez, director of business affairs of ABRAMUS Digital. “LyricFind plays a very important role and we are very excited about this partnership.”
This deal coincides with LyricFind launching a new initiative to translate Portuguese lyrics in an effort to put a spotlight on Brazilian songwriters. “Since the bossa nova movement, people outside Brazil who didn’t know Portuguese had little chance to really hear and understand our lyrics,” said Luciana Pegorer, Brazil lead for LyricFind and organizer of the Trends Brasil conference. “LyricFind is working to change all that.”
