Across our Prime Video Channel, website, and iOS app, we have created a unique experience that combines a curated collection of more than 180 films that bring to life the most meaningful moments in music and surrounds these films with immersive, custom editorial from the most talented music writers in the world.
Together, this experience aspires to do nothing less than transform the way in which people experience the power of music.
