The growth of world music in the 20th century has grown due to the Digital age. Smart phone has grown in the sub-sahara Africa making countries such as Kenya, South Africa and Nigeria a good market place for digital music down load. In Europe those countries has population growth in countries like Germany, France U K and the United States even in Asia music such as Afro-Beat have spread throughout the continent making African music demand soar in those country couple this with international Festivals across the globe the music popularities, has help the sales of world music to increase world-wide.
France has a large African migrant and also have the largest music festivals given room to the sales of world- music to the ever increasing listeners, and buyers of world music. In the UK, major recording companies see the pop, market more lucrative with the ever increasing realities tv shows that help market the product smaller labels are gradually filling the gap to the world music beat.
Our targeted market, is world-wide but more established market, is France USA Spain Holland London Canada Africa Asia and Latin America
Our competitors are small, due to the major record companies such as Sony, EMI, Universal abandoning the more specialist African music for more commercial pop music my main competitors I have worked with in the past and knows where the market is internationally.
What we will be bring to our business, is the more direct contact to our customers as more African restaurants opens up in London and the local market place accommodating African shop from food to fashion shops barber shops on street corners and business canters opening up in the city the opportunities to stock our product increases
We will also develop our mailing list to target professionals the ever busy workaholic that now relies on their internet to shop on line other cities such as Manchester, Birmingham, Liverpool, Glasgow Aberdeen and wales this will be an area to expand our focus on initially through the internet, and gradually take our road show there, meeting our customers face to face
