About Us

Lalela Music Library for film, TV and other media


Lalela Music is a USA/South African company, and we aim to bring together the best of two great countries in music.

Lalela (‘la-LEH-la') is Zulu for ‘LISTEN'. We are a production music library with a global inflection. Take a moment and listen to our music. Our music's been used on networks like CBS and MTV and for studios like Dreamworks, and for promoting Playstation 3 games.
