The singers finding ‘Instagram fame’ during Covid-19 lockdowns – BBC News

Published

on



When India imposed a coronavirus lockdown last year, it upended the country’s live music industry without any warning.

With gigs cancelled and concert dates pushed back, performers across the country were left without an audience.

That pressure forced many of the artists online, and some carved a new stage for themselves on Instgram.

These singers and musicians – Mansa, Aishwarya Suresh Bindra, Mali and Tarun Balani – have found massive popularity as they find new ways to connect with fans.

But can social media completely fill the void of live performance spaces?

    Correlation does not equal causation. This should be obvious. So why do we assume that the detection of a virus means it is the cause of a disease? This is actually insane when you think about it.

    I'm happy for any artist that escapes the clutches of the music publishers, but there are thousands of British artists doing this, so why is a channel funded by British licence payers focussing on musicians in India?

    Maybe learn a trade and get a real job building infrastructure.
    Can't rely on the internet for money, use your brain.
    There is a shortage of skilled workers, talk about that. Not meaningless jobs where people are trying to hit it big so they can be lazy for 50 more years. I hate celebrities.

She has also gained the endorsements of a large number of Democrats, including Nancy Pelosi and the Clintons.

Kamala Harris campaign launch: “election a choice between freedom and chaos” | BBC News

Published

Kamala Harris has told her first election campaign rally that American voters face “a choice between freedom and chaos”. She was speaking in the critical swing state of Wisconsin.

It came as senior Democrats threw their support behind Kamala Harris to be their party’s candidate in November’s presidential election, after Joe Biden withdrew from the race.

The most powerful Democrats in Congress, Chuck Schumer and Hakeem Jeffries, announced their support for Ms Harris shortly before the rally. Kamala Harris was launching her campaign with just 105 days to go before the election.
