TORONTO, ON - Today, the Canadian Independent Music Association (CIMA), in partnership with BuzzAngle Music, launched Canadian independent-only music charts, the CIMA 20 and CIMA 40. The two charts available every Tuesday represent the market success of independent artists in Canada, by ranking their current album packages encompassing music sales, downloads and streams. This week Mario Pelchat's Agnus Dei (MP3 Disques) topped the CIMA 20 and CIMA 40 charts.
BuzzAngle Music's comprehensive consumption analytics these new charts will offer data at a more granular level, in a much more timely manner than the most commonly used measurement of sales and streaming available up until this point
"We believe these weekly charts will serve to graphically illustrate the deep pool of talent we have here in Canada." - Stuart Johnston, President of CIMA.
