With a core focus on innovative mobile products that combine music play, game mechanics and social interaction, Zya gives people new ways interact with music.
In our first offering, Zya: The Ultimate Music Game, players can make their own songs and mash-up world famous or combine elements of both to create great music that is uniquely theirs. The game has maintained an average rating of 4.5 stars on the App Store, also recognized as an Appy Award finalist, Stratus Award winner, and featured in an IBM TV commercial that has been seen by over 130 million people.
Zya is a venture and angel-backed startup whose investors include Intel Capital, Liberty Global, and Shea Ventures. We’re headquartered in Calabasas, California, just northwest of Los Angeles.
