“The music industry has also been affected by the business paralysis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. We understand that artists from all over the world have canceled their participation in festivals, concerts and music competitions, however, the crisis is also an opportunity to be entrepreneurs and implement significant changes in the industry, so Djooky is a new opportunity for them and it gives you the opportunity to promote your talent. ” explained Brian Malouf, Co-Founder and judge of the DMA.
