Hi there Natalie & Pedro,

Thanks for getting in touch. Here's what our copyright team says about this: You may use SoundCloud for your own personal use, though if you use music in a public space this might be considered a public performance and you may need additional licenses for this use.

We apologise that we cannot give any legal advice on this, and we recommend that you get in contact with your local music rights organisation for more information about what licenses you may need for this use.
