Global music rights management company Reel Muzik Werks (RMW) has partnered with India-based band Shor Police to launch Tunes Without Borders, an initiative to bring international music to English-speaking cultures.

Reel Muzik Werks Founder & CEO Teri Nelson Carpenter first became acquainted with Shor Police through the All About Music conference in Mumbai. The band is comprised of vocalist/composer Clinton Cerejo and singer-songwriter Bianca Gomes, and draws from electro-pop, R&B, folk, Indian classical, jazz, funk, and soul.

RMW and the band decided to team up to form Tunes Without Borders and released the Shor Police single “Monopoly Money” on March 20th to kick off the collaboration, followed by a new single every 10 days until the full Shor Police album, ‘Well, Hello’, is released.

Share music around the world

The project will consist of nine total tracks along with nine music videos. The music will be featured in a dedicated Tunes Without Borders YouTube channel. “It’s a privilege to work in the creation of music no matter where that music comes from,” said Carpenter. “I’m excited for our two companies, through Tunes Without Borders, to share music around the world that everyone can enjoy.”

“It’s an honor to present our debut album as Shor Police in association with Reel Muzik Werks and we know that this new collaboration will be the start of an exciting new musical journey together” said Shor Police.

They added: “The album is the first piece of content that we are putting out as part of this initiative, and we intend to follow up with a lot of interesting music featuring collaborations with some incredible artists from India. We believe that there’s never been a better time for India to shine, and we couldn’t have asked for a better global partner than Reel Muzik Werks to take this ride with us.”
