In isolation, music feels more necessary than usual. That’s why many artists in quarantine are finding other ways to perform “live”, via platforms like Instagram and YouTube. These “quarantine concerts” are playing a fascinating role in keeping the public arts alive while public life is on lockdown.
On their Instagram profiles today, both pop icon Sirusho, who represented Armenia in 2008 and Romanian pop star Alexandra Stan announced to go live tonight, on the evening of 27 April in order to give their fans a good energy. Fans will also have the chance to ask questions and see their favorite artists in a way that might not be able under normal circumstances.
Sirusho specifically writes in her Instagram page:
We have been in touch with some of my international colleagues and we talk about how we work and create music from home. We decided to make you guys a part of these discussions. We will be connecting through Instagram Live.
