Spotify Bangladesh Collaborate With Bappa Mazumder, Arfius Al-din, Elita Karim

Spotify Bangladesh collaborates with famous Bangladeshi musicians. As part of the ongoing commitment to building a truly borderless audio ecosystem— connecting creators, listeners, and content—Spotify is embarking on a sweeping expansion, the company said on its website. This will add 36 languages to its platform. “These moves represent Spotify’s broadest market expansion to date,” it said.

The company is set to roll out the service in other South countries such as Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, and the Maldives.

“It will definitely be good for the artists. The platform will allow audiences and viewers to listen and watch music content from anywhere in the world,” said popular singer-musician Bappa Mazumder.

Arfius Al-din said,” There are many hidden talents in Bangladesh who like the new opportunities to show their talents.”

He said songs have to be copyrighted first in order to benefit from the platform. Otherwise, artists, lyricists, and composers behind the creation of music would face trouble in getting royalty.

“Piracy is rampant in Bangladesh. Copyright laws are violated. So, artists get almost nothing in royalty. The only source of income for them is stage shows.” If people listen to music through Spotify, then artists may get a share of the revenue generated from the content, she said. Hamin Ahmed, president of the Bangladesh Musical Bands Association (BAMBA) and a member of the rock band Miles, is, however, not much optimistic.
“Nothing will happen to artists. I would be happy if I am proven wrong.”
Because of Spotify, Bangladesh will become another market for foreign language songs, he said.
Despite its enormous popularity, Spotify has long faced criticism over streaming royalties, which many musicians say are inadequate, according to BBC News.

The musician has copyrighted some of his songs, which brought him some money regularly, although the amount is insignificant.
Elita Karim, another musician, said musicians could make a living in the developed world, but it had never been possible in Bangladesh.
Spotify has been reluctant to raise its subscription prices because of increased competition, so increasing revenues will depend on new subscribers or different types of content, said Andrew Milroy, director of technology advisory firm Veqtor8.
