It was September 18th and 19th, 2017, when the who's who of the music business from India and abroad flocked to Taj Lands End in Mumbai. Tarsame Mittal, the visionary founder of TM Talent Management, Truly Musical, ART Group, Entertainment Consultants and Music Plus, had thrown a big gala party at the hotel called All About Music!
All About Music is as unsuspecting as a name for an IP can be! In plain simple words, without any beating around the bush, you might as well take the name on face value, coz it indeed is all about music. Starting from content copyright, legal issues, digital marketing, social media, branded musical content, evolution of the industry, music distribution, live concerts, talent booking, artist management, business revenue, regional music, international opportunities, et al, the music conference discussed every single topic related to India's evolving music industry.
With about a 100 stalwarts discussing music on stage over 2 days, several one-to-one sessions thrown around, sumptuous buffet spreads, TM artists livening up the event with their impromptu performances, the 700 odd attendees couldn't get enough of the event. Both days ended with informal after parties, and a whole lot of fun. And we all went back home with wonderful memories, and a hope to come back again next year at a much bigger All About Music mega conference!
P.S. 5th September, 2017 saw the Kolkata preview where I shared the stage with stalwarts like Tarsame, copyright lawyer Priyanka Khimani, percussions maestro Bickram Ghosh, SVF founder Mahendra Soni, Siddhartha Roy of Hungama. com and Nishit Arora of Jamsteady and Smoke Inc, as we interacted with young fans and musicians about the challenges faced in Kolkata's ever changing music industry. The 90 minutes session ended on a good note, with lots of hope and promises for the future. As a proud strategic partner, the E365 family would like to thank everyone involved with this event. And Tarsame, you are the man!
