Merci à France 3 Rhône-Alpes Auvergne de parler de la culture libre et du téléchargement légal. Mardi dernier, le 26 mai, l'émission C’est mieux le matin a parlé des Creative Commons, de Framasoft et de jamendo ! 

Regardez la rubrique en question ci-dessous. On y entend même des extraits de chansons de Hugo "Droopy" Contini, Amélie et The Dada Weatherman (dont les noms n'ont en revanche pas été cités)...

This is a brand new feature we just released: artists can now create their own Virtual Shop on jamendo and sell all kinds of goodies and rarities to their fans. Think albums in high definition sound, booklets in pdf or concert posters to download. But they can also be physical objects or even Action goodies for which the artists commit to come play at your house, invite you backstage, have dinner with you or whatever they come up with.

All this against a small fee. Or not so small. The artists alone decide what to sell, set their price, and the money will go straight to their pockets. Go check out the first available rarities here!

This just in: the very first Rarity item has just been sold today (29 May). It's the album "Personnel" by Tom La Mèche. Congratulations to him!

20000 albums

Well, it seems like just a few months ago we were celebrating 10,000 albums published on jamendo and this weekend we passed the 20,000 album mark!

Actually, it was 11 months ago to be precise. Look at it this way and you'll understand why we're the first to be impressed with the figures: it will have taken jamendo 3 years to gather 10,000 albums, and then just under one year later, that number has doubled!

It's pretty safe to say we're going strong. And even safer to say it's all thanks to you: artists, members and everyone contributing to spread the word of free music!

So, who's placing bets on reaching the 30,000 mark?

Eight months? Six?...

A great, free music-oriented blog based in Maine, regularly releases web compilations gathering its best findings. The latest issue focuses entirely on music from jamendo, with artists such as Isolated Atoms, AS-Potiront and Roberto Billi. Here's what Michael Gregoire, founder of, has to say about it:

BlocSonicis an attempt to cut through the mountains of primarily free netaudio to shine the spotlight on the gems that we find along the way. With each of our netBloccompilations and original releases, we strive to introduce new people to the Creative Commons/open-licensed audio culture by showing that there's exciting and innovative music that isn't being spoon-fed to them via TV and radio. 

While promoting these gems is one way to promote this exciting musical culture, we also feel that there needs to be more cooperation and networking amongst websites, netlabels, artists, blogs and podcasts who take part in it. 

"netBloc Vol. 21: opening your ears with jamendo" continues this sub-series of netBloc releases with a selection of excellent examples of what has to offer. This won't be our last specially focused netBloc release, nor will it be our last focusing on jamendo! Of course, since this release is spotlighting jamendo gems, it's available at for download in mp3 format. To download the complete 48 page PDF, album art or lossless FLAC audio version, visit the release page.
