Abstract and Keywords

This chapter examines the role of independent labels in mobile music consumption and distribution in Brazil. It explains the division between independent and major labels and their relationship with digital consolidation services, and it discusses the role of iMúsica as one of the main mobile content aggregators for the major and independent labels in the country. It suggests that independent labels are more motivated to shift their strategy to mobile distribution than are major labels, and it considers the impact of late capitalism and the discourse of modernity on the musical output of Brazil.

Keywords: mobile music, music consumption, music distribution, independent labels, Brazil, iMúsica, late capitalism, modernity, musical output
