Tarsame Mittal, Founder, Tarsame Mittal Talent Management states, “Being in the business of talent management, I have been interacting with a lot of established and emerging talent, as well as music labels, publishers , copyright societies etc. and I have noticed the lack of communiqué and information which in the long run is detrimental to the growth of music business. I want to change the way music is standardized today. Conferences are like a mini industry reunion and serve as a reminder to everyone in the business to constantly empower and update themselves and everyone around them. India is currently one of the world’s biggest music markets that caters to 1.3 billion people and is valued at 14 billion INR and is expected to touch 25.4 billion INR by 2021. All About Music is a platform curated to put the spotlight on the potential of the Indian music industry and set new benchmarks and goals. Our aim is to bring together all the different stakeholders of the music industry together on an exclusive platform to amplify the future of music.”
Through an intimate series of programs such as panel discussions, case studies, expert meet and greets, networking hub, the two-day conference curated by Tarsame Mittal Talent Management will act as a catalyst for collaboration, exploration and expansion of the indigenous music industry and will culminate in a music showcase featuring a leading artist.
