Ep. 131: Artist Management & setting up music properties with Romario
29/04/2019 by IVM Podcasts
Ever been to a music gig and wondered how it all came together? Look at the artists on stage – how did they get there? Do they just ring up the venue? Do the venues call them? Do bands have an “HR”? What does being an artist involve? Just play in your bedroom, upload on YouTube, become famous, play at gigs and have fans at your feet? Well – sort of, but there’s a lot in between. To unravel that, we have Romario Rodrigues joining Chuck & Naren in the studio as we aim to ‘simblify’ artist management. Romario has set up a company called Kranti Art Theory that has recently turned one year old, and works with some promising music and visual artists in India. They had a lovely chat about what the whole thing involves, and how (get this!) his company celebrated its first year in business by throwing a party on a boat! Check out Kranti Art Theory on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/soundsofkranti) & Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/soundsofkranti/) – they have some fun gigs coming up every now and then, and work with some very cool artists.

- What a Bombay accent Romario had. Wonderful.
- I think there’s a major generation gap at play when this guy talked about how all his work happens through Instagram and I shuddered at the thought.
- But his entrepreneurship story is quite impressive.
