It’s A Tough Season…. But Please Stay Home
Our hearts go out to those who have been affected by Covid-19, especially all those in China, Italy and USA which are the most affected countries in the world. Lots of organizations like the WHO, United Nations, Amref, PAHO have detailed what we need to do to curb this pandemic. As Kipawa Music, we support these actions. We salute all our medical workers who are risking their lives every day to save millions of precious souls. Our prayers go out to them and their families as they battle in the front-lines to prevent this virus from doing any further damage.
What Does This Mean For Music Professionals?
For most music professionals, one of the biggest setbacks is the inability to hold music concerts, festivals and performances. While I do believe that things will stabilize, our primary focus is to stay alive. In this uncertain time, the only thing we can do is follow the instructions laid down by our respective governments to stay home and follow basic hygiene including vigorous washing of hands with soap among other actions like social distancing and coughing into your elbow.
Always wash your hands. This simple action can save your lives.
There’s no need to expose yourself to threat. There are a number of things you can do from home. First is to use this time to explore your craft, re-invent yourself, see how you can translate your craft online, either through online concerts, videos or publishing your music on music marketplaces. From a personal perspective, maintain social distancing. Work from home. Wash your hands with soap. Maintain at least a 3 meter distance from people. Avoid touching as many surfaces as possible. Use Wifi for online meetings. And pray. It works.
