Finding the appropriate type of background music for your video is incredibly important. Figuring out the right kind of mood, genre, style is one of the first steps – but what about adding a cultural touch? I mean, if you’re doing a shoot of Oktoberfest, wouldn’t it be great to have some German Polka as background music for your video?
In order to really resonate with your viewers, in order to make them feel like they’re in their screens when they’re actually on their couch- culturally relevant music is key.
When it comes to finding Arabic background music, it can, unfortunately, be extremely different. There are few platforms out there are that allow for content creators to access Middle Eastern and Arabic music. But browse to the bottom of this article, and you’ll find the solution.
The alternative (& long way) to access music from musicians in the region would be by contacting the copyright holder – but first, you need to figure out who the copyright holder is. Is it the musician? The record label? The publisher? After (if possible) finding out who the copyright holder is, you have to find a way to contact them. After you contact them, you have to send contracts back and forth figuring out legalities and payments. Finally, after a timely, costly, and hefty process – you are able to legally use the content as background music for your video.
