The band AudioMaze will now exclusively distribute Terrenaissance releases to digital platforms worldwide via The Orchard, a subsidiary of Sony Music, as well as provide global marketing and promotional support from its headquarters in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

AudioMaze, one of the leading independent world music labels in Europe, and Terrenaissance, an acoustic fusion band from Trinidad and Tobago, announced they have signed an exclusive two-year global distribution and licensing agreement. The signing takes place ahead of the virtual launch of Terrenaissance’s debut EP, Earthology, in mid-October.

The signing follows some two months of talks in the wake of the release of “Sringara”, which has already garnered some 30,000 views on social media since the band’s Facebook launch in late July 2020. AudioMaze will now exclusively distribute Terrenaissance releases to digital platforms worldwide via The Orchard, a subsidiary of Sony Music, as well as providing global marketing and promotional support from its headquarters in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

AudioMaze founder and owner, Abdullah Geels said of the deal: “It is not often that I come across such a unique combination of sounds and cultures. I am delighted that Terrenaissance agreed to combine forces with Audiomaze to create new ways of sharing the sound of Trinidad and Tobago with a global audience. I look forward to working hand in hand with Terrenaissance to get their amazing music to as much possible listeners around the globe.”

According to bandleader Avianne Callender, “Terrenaissance’s signing with Audiomaze marks a new chapter in the band’s journey of forging new paths and making creative connections that are not always obvious. ”
