The EMI Group (Electric & Musical Industries Ltd.) is a British music company comprising the major record company EMI Music which operates several labels and is based in Kensington in London, England, United Kingdom and EMI Music Publishing, based in New York. EMI Music is one of the "big four" record companies.
The Electric and Musical Industries Ltd formed in March 1931 from the merger of the UK Columbia Graphophone Company and the Gramophone Company, famous at the time for its record label "His Master's Voice". From its beginning, the company was involved in both the manufacture of recording and playback equipment and the provision of music to play on its machines.
