Tallinn Music Week is beneficial because doesn't only focus on the Baltic countries, but also on many countries in eastern Europe, and I'd say that makes it one of the most significant events going in this industry.
Only one performer from Ukraine performed at the showcase – Ivan Dorn
. People react in all kinds of different ways to his music, but like with Russia – they brought 18 or 20 different performers, and Ukraine had just the one. So now I'm trying to push the idea of showcasing our musicians with my colleagues, in order to get our get our artists ready, helping them in the application process and giving them an idea of how events like this can help them. Tallinn is where we need to start because it's logistically easier and cheaper to organise and their format make sense.
