Our history

Our story is the story of passionate people, who would not understand life without music.

The inspiration

In 2006, Nando Luaces and Inma Grass had an inspiration linked to music.

It was not a chord. It wasn’t a lyric. Nor a chorus.

It was something that was going to revolutionize everything that had gone before: digital music distribution.

Inspired by the digital revolution that was growing around the world, in 2006 they decided to invest in developing the first Spanish technology necessary to distribute music digitally.

The first notes

But it was not a random choice motivated by a percentage of profitability.

Nando and Inma were already part of the music industry. They already lived, felt and loved music above all things.

Nando had founded BOA in 1993, the first independent company to specialize in hip-hop in Spanish. Inma, on the other hand, had more than 10 years of experience in multinational record companies.

And it is their love of music that led them to continue researching and evolving.

More than an investment, it was a vital necessity.

On the road

All this passion mixed with inspiration, vision, anticipation and luck, led to the foundation of Altafonte in 2011.

The first digital music distributor in Spain.

And, surely, the only one in the world that combines technology with a true knowledge and love for music, with large doses of social and environmental awareness, commitment and human values.

There couldn’t be any catchier lyrics.
