The Very Best Caribbean Christmas Ever!
Los Angeles, CA (Vocus) October 19, 2010
Caribbean label CRS Music & Media, a member of COT Media Group, a marketing and production organization made up of 5 complementary companies based in Barbados, has signed on with BFM Digital to handle the digital distribution and marketing of their multi-genre catalog. BFM Digital, a leading digital distributor of independent music, will be distributing the content.
This important partnership aids in vastly expanding the reach of CRS Music & Media beyond their operation in Barbados and the Caribbean islands to audiences throughout the rest of the World. It also propels CRS toward their goal of introducing larger audiences to lesser-known Caribbean genres such as Soca, Calypso, Steelpan, and Spouge. COT Media Group utilizes this relationship to introduce digital distribution into an already well-rounded offering of services to their clients that includes branding design, marketing strategy development, manufacturing of promotional materials and publishing representation.

More will come closer to the Holiday season on these releases.
