"It’s a massive coup for us to have them as our very first partner in the region, as it’s home to some of Indonesia's most recognisable cultural icons and music, as well as some of the most exciting developing artists on its roster. I'm looking forward to ADA and Warner Music getting behind them as we look to showcase Indonesia's rich culture and musical talents to the rest of the world."
ADA Asia launched earlier this month, and DPM's MD Iwan Sastra Wijaya welcomed the deal, declaring: "We’re very excited to join forces with ADA to propel both our well-established catalogue and our frontline hits, which have become a revelation in this dawn of the streaming era in Indonesia."
Earlier this month Warner Music has stepped up its presence in India by signing a distribution deal with Bollywood music company Tips Music.
