Soulfege launches unique music campaign
Well, Soulfege has come up with a creative way to put the power of music back in the hands of artists and audiences where it belongs. The idea is to break a band without a corporate label, change the music industry, and connect people around the world through the electrifying, consciousness-raising songs of ‘AFropolitan‘.
They are giving away 1,000,000 downloads of tracks and remixes from the band’s new album ‘AFropolitan’ by Christmas 2012 as part of their Million Download Campaign (MDC).
In less than 3 months the MDC has garnered some big successes, including:
• 42,000+ downloads netted since launch, with downloads from over 50 different countries worldwide.
• Presentations at Social Media Week in NY and DC
• DNA’s speech and performance at Google headquarters.
• ‘AFropolitan’ debuted in Top 50 of the JazzWeek World Music Chart and has remained there.
• Short film “Love Rain Down,” based on the song from ‘AFropolitan’, accepted into Palm Beach International Film Festival
• “Easy Does It” from ‘AFropolitan’ a finalist in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest
• DNA identified by BlackAmericaWeb.com as one of “Five Brilliant Brothers You Should Know by Now”
• DNA’s blog post “Get Your Hands Out of My Pocket” has been translated by fans into seven languages and counting.
Meanwhile, Derrick Ashong’s show “The Stream” on Al-Jazeera English recently won a Royal Television Award for Most Innovative Show.
