The Association of Independent Music Publishers and Producers Bulgaria, ANMIP, has officially joined the WIN community, after being admitted as a member of IMPALA, the organization for independent music businesses across Europe. The Bulgarian association becomes the 37th member of WIN, which is now expanding the network’s reach to 43 territories after welcoming new organizations from India and Paraguay this summer.
ANMIP was founded earlier this year with 12 members and board director Ruth Koleva. Its first move was to link up with sister organizations across the world joining IMPALA and WIN. IMPALA members Kees Van Weijen (STOMP, NL) and Dario Draštata (RUNDA, ex-YU) are members of the ANMIP advisory board.
The development of new associations and networks is one of the priorities of our organizations, with IMPALA overseeing the work in Europe and WIN everywhere else. In recent years, IMPALA has played an active role in strengthening the market and connecting independents across Central and Eastern Europe. We are delighted to welcome ANMIP to the WIN family and look forward to connecting Bulgaria’s independent music industry with its peers around the world.Noemí Planas, CEO of WIN
