Blocking robot downloads from a publically available mp3 on a website

I "run" the website for a friend who is a musician. I say "run" because I don't know what I'm doing really. Anyways, I have some mp3s of his works on his website. He likes this and it is important to him, but a vast majority of the traffic I end up paying for is various scraping robots and the like that I imagine just download every mp3 they can find in the world just because. Is there some smart way to block this while still letting the website work?
