Greetings, fellow music lovers!
I am Antonio Teoli, the founder and CEO of Sounds of the Earth. Today, I want to share with you the story of our journey, from the birth of The Amazonic to the rebranding of our company.
In 2018, I had a dream of recording the essence of the Amazon's sounds and musicality. I envisioned creating the first sample library recorded by natives and locals, which would not only showcase Brazil's diverse musical heritage but also preserve traditional instruments that are in danger of being lost. The result was The Amazonic: AMA 1, which was a roaring success.
Feeling that our mission should be expanded, we knew we had to go further and capture the soul of music from other cultures worldwide.
After much reflection and dialogue with industry experts, I came to the realization that The Amazonic was not an appropriate name to represent sounds from other cultures. Although I hold the name dear to my heart and take pride in having created it, I recognized the need for a different name that better aligns with our expanded mission. And so, after careful consideration, I chose the name Sounds of the Earth as the new company's name.
At Sounds of the Earth, we're on a mission to create something that transcends borders and connects cultures. We believe that music has the power to bring people together, inspire change, and preserve traditional sounds. That's why my new business partner, Daniel Figueiredo, and I, along with our dedicated team, are committed to collaborating with native and local musicians from around the world to capture the essence of music from diverse cultures.
Our goal is to create a movement that empowers musicians, preserves traditional sounds, and contributes to social causes globally. Through our work, we hope to inspire others and create positive change.
From everyone at Sounds of the Earth, thank you for your support! We hope to continue making music that transcends borders and connects us all.
Founder and CEO of Sounds of the Earth
