The islandchief has partnered with Musicians’ Union of the Maldives (M.U.M) to promote local music talents and share their artistry in the hospitality industry. The talents will be featured in a special column dedicated in the monthly print edition of The islandchief.
Through this collaboration, The islandchief aims to support and make way in providing opportunities for the featured local musicians and artists across the tourism and hospitality scene of the Maldives. The islandchief hopes to link with the goals of M.U.M to advocate for the local music industry’s growth by increasing musicians’ overall employment and income.
Due to the pandemic and the limited opportunities available during this time, local talents have faced difficulties in securing a stable position in the industry. However, with the reopening of tourist establishments and eased restrictions in the country, the situation is gradually improving.
The Musicians’ Union of the Maldives was formed in August 2020, with the goal set to empower local musicians in all aspects of the music industry in the Maldives. M.U.M represents formally employed and self-employed individuals, as well as emerging artists in the field who have registered as official members of the organization. Through their endeavours, the Union offers advice, support, and legal assistance to its members.
