Music makes friends as Iran's Rastak ensemble crosses Gulf

Yahoo! Music News - Sat, 05/09/2015 - 01:09

Members of Iranian folk music band Rastak participate in an interview in MuscatBy Sam Wilkin MUSCAT (Reuters) - The sharp sound of a sorna, an Iranian oboe-like instrument, pierced the silence of Muscat's Royal Opera House. As other Gulf Arab countries fret over what they see as a growing Iranian military influence, hundreds of Omanis turned out on Thursday to welcome the 14 members of the Rastak ensemble to their capital and drink in the sounds of Iranian folk music. "The sheer presence of Rastak is a celebration of our close ties with Iran. Rastak, founded in 1997 by a group of music students in Tehran, has brought its energetic brand of Iranian folk music to some of the world's leading venues including London's Barbican, but Thursday's one-night performance was its first in the Gulf.

Pandora defeats ASCAP, music publishers in royalties appeal

Yahoo! Music News - Thu, 05/07/2015 - 04:31

Screen displays the name of music streaming company Pandora on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange shortly after the start of trading in New YorkBy Jonathan Stempel NEW YORK (Reuters) - A federal appeals court in Manhattan rejected appeals by a music licensing group and music publishers that could have forced Internet radio service Pandora Media Inc to pay higher royalties and have access to fewer songs. In a case closely watched in the music industry, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday rejected an effort by the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers to charge Pandora more to license its music from 2013 to 2015. It also said rules governing ASCAP licensing "unambiguously" barred music publishers from negotiating higher rates for their works with "new media" users such as Pandora, even as ASCAP licensed the same works to other users. Vivendi SA's Universal Music Publishing, Sony/ATV Music Publishing and EMI Music Publishing had withdrawn their new media licensing rights from ASCAP, while retaining membership in that group.
