Our History

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

La inspiración

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

It was not a chord. It wasn't a letter. Not a chorus.

It was something that was going to revolutionize all of the above: 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.

Las primeras notas

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 else.

Nando founded BOA in 1993 , the first independent company specialized in hip-hop in Spanish. For her part, Inma, 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 founding of Altafonte in 2011.

The first digital musical distributor in Spain.

And, surely, the only 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 could be no catchier lyrics.
