Music-streaming in the Middle East: ‘There is a space and place for everyone’
Posted on: 24 janvier 2019, by : Eamonn Forde

Spotify and Deezer’s recent launches in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) have highlighted the region’s status as a strategic priority for the music industry – although these companies (and Apple Music) are facing strong competition from local streaming service Anghami.
Trends in the MENA region were the focus for a panel session at Music Ally and Music Biz’s NY:LON Connect conference in London today. Speakers included Eddy Maroun, co-founder of Anghami; Moe Hamzeh, MD of Warner Music Middle East; Liliana Abudalo, manager of music content partnerships, Middle East, at Google and YouTube; and Habib Achour, head of Africa and Middle East at Sacem. Music Biz’s Bill Wilson chaired.
In setting up the discussion, Hamzeh talked of the importance of understanding the rich complexity of the region, with its many cultures, languages and dialects. A flat and uniform approach across the Middle East, then, will not pay off.
