Terry Mardi last week announced an alliance with Bucks Music for his new music publishing venture, Asian Music Publishing Ltd, which aims to be “the first ever independent Asian music publishing company with a dedicated mission to represent writers, composers and producers of Asian music on a global basis”. Bucks will administrate the song rights AMP acquires, starting next month when the new publisher aims to make its first composer and catalogue signings.

AMP MD Mardi told CMU: “We are focused on creating a fair and sustainable eco-system for writers and composers of Asian music around the world. Our number one goal is to generate license and royalty income streams for our writers, creators and copyright owners, including record labels who administer or control music copyrights. We see AMP as a ground-breaking music publisher, helping to redefine the landscape of the Asian music industry”.

On the Bucks deal, Mardi continued: “Our relationship with the Bucks Music Group – with wholly-owned offices with direct society memberships in twelve major territories – is part of our strategy to enfranchise and empower Asian artists who struggle to earn their due from the exploitation of their works around the world. AMP is proud to provide a truly global publishing solution for makers and copyright holders of Asian music”.

Bucks Music Group MD Simon Platz added: “With changes in Indian copyright law, the partnership between Terry Mardi and his team and the Bucks Music Group, gives South Asian composers the perfect home for their rights. With Bucks’s proven administration skills and AMP’s hunger for exploitation opportunities, composers will have a service second to none”.
