Episode 1 - Corona, solidarity and the digital cage
In our first episode, Simone Dudt (EMC) is joined by Silja Fischer (International Music Council) and Giambattista Tofoni fromEurope Jazz Network. They talk about the effects of the Corona crisis for the jazz field and Italy in particular and expand to more general questions, such as solidarity in Europe and how to endure the crisis with live concerts still being rare and musicians as well as the “invisible” workers of the music sector struggling for survival. Their exchange on the wide range of help mechanism put in place by the different countries and the upcoming EU budget, shows that there is still a great need for political decision makers to invest money in music.
