How Are Our Musicians Doing?

Francis Danker, President of Persatuan Pemuzik Malaysia

How Are Our Musicians Doing?

As the live music sector remains at a standstill, the struggle for musicians to make ends meet continues. Last year we spoke to Musicians for Musicians, an initiative founded to help musicians to the best of their ability, such as setting up programs to teach the basics of live streaming so that musicians could still earn a living while in quarantine. Hence, we check in with the president of Persatuan Pemuzik Malaysia and Persatuan Pemuzik Tempatan Selangor, Francis Danker, to see how they’re coping this time around, talking through the works they’ve done thus far and collaborations too.
