Amusica Songs Management has joined IMPEL - the international collective licensing agency representing digital publishing rights. Amusica Songs Management is a division of Aroma Music, one of Israel's leading independent music groups.

The company’s roster has written for and with a range of top performers including Omer Adam, Eden Ben Zaken, Moshe Peretz, Dudu Aharon, Noa Kirel and Jonathan Mergui.
Amusica’s catalogue has amassed billions of streams worldwide.
An international collective licensing agency representing digital publishing rights, IMPEL is 100% owned and controlled by its members, which include respected independent publishers such as Bucks Music Group, Beggars Music, Reservoir Music, Kassner Music, CTM, ABKCO, Truelove Music, Mute Song, Faber Music and Reach Music.
Aroma Music CEO Michal Weissberg said: “We are delighted to join such a great group of like-minded, independent publishers. Music written by Israeli writers is breaking internationally and we believe that teaming up with IMPEL gives our writers what they need. Under the IMPEL umbrella, we can ensure that our writers are paid accurately, fairly and swiftly.”
IMPEL CEO Sarah Williams said: “We are really excited to be welcoming Amusica. The hard graft ethos and ambition of the company is impressive, and we look forward to working with them to fulfil their vision. This also marks an important moment for IMPEL as we expand beyond what is traditionally perceived to be "Anglo-American" repertoire to embrace other qualifying works in other languages. This is a reflection both of our own goals and of the way in which the global music landscape is maturing.”
