Helping The Pinoy Music Industry In Your Own Little Ways

Pinoy performers spend much of their time in crafting pieces of songs that will truly inspire their fellow men and enrich the Philippine music library. Their exceptional talents are Filipinos’ pride. Music is their lifeline, so they must be rewarded for the works of art that they make. You can absolutely do the right thing and take these steps to further uplift the Philippine music industry.

Go for the original. Piracy is an alarming illegal practice in the Philippines. As consumers, the best thing that we could do is to give our sincerest support through buying original CDs and music video recordings of local artists. Nowadays, the web has put more pressure on the music industry since people can easily access songs by means of downloading and file sharing. Illicit practice of these activities threatens the thriving music industry. Despite the insistent campaign against piracy by the government, it would never be a resounding success unless we are going to support it wholeheartedly. It’s our choice to make a change.

Practice music loyalty. Concerts, mall shows, international tours, show guestings and any other forms of public exposures are among the means of music artists to earn a living. In that case, what we can do is to support these sustaining activities in order to keep the industry on fire. Musical programs and other entertainment shows should be given viewing significance. In-house radio stations that play local songs more often than foreign ones are much commendable to listen to. Aside from fulfilling your musical desires, you can also feel a hearty sense of pride.

Maximize your connection. The boom of the internet greatly contributes to sudden downturn in the music industry. But this digital innovation can have a reverse effect. How? Make use of the internet as a powerful tool to promote and strengthen the campaign against rampant copyright infringement. You can also write something about our local artists or their songs through blogs and social networking sites. Create topics or posts that can draw massive attention or encourage user discussion streams. Whether they criticize or praise, somehow you stand out for something you believe in. Connect and gain advantage on the online scene!

Buy licensed products. The bliss of singing is also achieved through various entertainment tools such as videoke and portable karaoke devices. These singing equipments have numerous built-in songs, both foreign and local. Licensed products of this kind really show enormous support for Pinoy music artists as they give royalty fees for their work. Isn’t it more valuable to purchase a licensed product? Not only can you have an utmost singing rendezvous, but you’re also helping the music industry prosper as well.

As Filipinos, patronizing and supporting our local talents should be a main concern. Indeed, we are pretty much amazed and become avid fans of foreign singers. Despite this fondness, we should also put our artists on top of the local music scene together with their works of art. Actions, no matter how small it is, could positively go a long way.
