Zona started its record label operations
back in 1991, with Baltic releases of artists like
Joy Division, Pixies, Cocteau Twins, Dead
Can Dance, Sugarcubes and many other notable foreign acts.
Zona's work with the local talent included releases by legendary
Lithuanian rock bands – Antis and Bix, Russian cult bands Va Bank and Avia, as
well as several compillations of Baltic and Eastern European music. Zona’s full
back catalogue features a total of 80 plus releases and co-releases.
Nowadays, Zona Records is building its
front catalogue and business strategies proceeding from belief that Baltic, as
well as the entire Eastern European, indy scene has much more to offer to the
global music industry, than it currently has a chance to. We believe that there
is a lot of talent in various genres to be found in the region, and their
success is only a matter of quality production, civilized and competent business
approach. Our principles are to follow international music industry standards,
observe integrity with our artists and business partners and work only with
music we believe to be a product of sencere creative output.
