The Global Music Industry Hit $19 Billion In Sales In 2018 -- what PERCENTAGE did TRINIDAD MUSIC TAKE HOME?

COTT raking in all kinds of money so they should be able to give us THAT ANSWER -- unless is ALL MIMIC MEN running everything down in THAT COUNTRY.

Even if we eh reach the THE DIGITAL AGE YET down there -- the PHYSICAL SALES was almost FIVE BILLION DOLLARS. How much we get from that?

Again, I say!!! It is time to stop ALL THE WE SO TALENTED TALK and start making some GLOBAL MUSIC to DEMONSTRATE THE TALENT I have been hearing about for the LAST 50 YEARS!!!


OK, I have heard your complaints.

Now, what part are you willing to play?
Will you start a global streaming company for T&T music?
Will you assist one performer or steelband to get involved in the global marketplace?

BTW COTT is not "raking in money". COTT is not a private company. and is in an endless battle with radio stations and TV stations and fete promoters and businesses who play recorded music to collect 'royalties' and 'neighbouring rights' to distribute to their COMPOSER MEMBERS. If you ask the members they would tell you that their earnings are nowhere near to what it should/could be.
Is there a way that you could help to build awareness of the rights of composers and performers and help to get those who should pay to pay willingly?

Even if we eh reach the THE DIGITAL AGE YET down there???
