About Somuma

Songwriters and musicians created Somuma to empower ourselves - and the ones we love - through the power of our own music.

How do we empower ourselves and the ones we love?
We empower our creations.

How do we empower our creations?
We place them in support of the common good.

How do we support the common good?
First, we donate music downloads of one song to Artists for Media Diversity.
Then we consign a compilation of song recordings, an 'Artist Digital Album' of our own music, for promotion by our friends, fans and fellow artists.

How do recording artists benefit?
When we consign handpicked compilations of our music for sale in Somuma, we invite our friends and fans to promote our music so we don't have to. And we share a generous percentage of the proceeds with our social music marketeers. 

How does that work?
We consign digital albums at wholesale prices (50% of retail) so that we can share 25% of the proceeds with our friends and fans. Somuma tracks sales and pays recording artists and social music marketeers.

Can Artists also be Marketeers?
Absolutely!  Anyone can promote any artist digital  album in Somuma and receive 25% of sales income that is tracked from their personal websites and Facebook pages .

Where do we sign up to promote music?
Social music marketeers sign up  here.
