IMC calls for proposals for Five Music Rights Champions

15 years after the proclamation of the Five Music Rights, the IMC wishes to give new impetus to their promotion by appointing key figures as Dame Evelyn Glennie, Ramy Essam and Tabu Osusa (read more here).
The purpose of increasing the visibility of these core values and putting them ‘on the radar’ of musicians and music-lovers around the world as an expression of concerns they share with the IMC.

We would like to thank you once again for having supported this initiative and we encourage you to propose key figures of the music world to be nominated as IMC Music Rights Champions.
