Various Artists

Composers

Various artists (literally “multiple artists”) is a term used by the English recording industry to indicate that several musicians collaborated on a song or an album. Diminutives like VA , VV.AA. and V / A are frequently used.

 

The albums released under the name of “Various artists” are often compilations gathering songs of a particular kind, or different titles released during the same period (compilations by years, by decades etc.), or bands original of movies .
