A good thing about music, when it hits you, you don’t feel any pain.
While each country has its own language (s), there is only one language we can all understand: the language of music. We don’t even need words to understand what the music is saying. Every year I see a lot of different people from a lot of different countries attending festivals. When the music is playing, it seems that everyone understands what is coming out of the speakers and starts dancing to it.
We have all felt strong emotions when listening to music. Sad songs can make us cry, while happy music can make us euphoric. Music can move us in fascinating ways, there is also power in this second category. This is because one-sided music can make us better people by making us happier and therefore more likely to give of ourselves.
Trends are the one thing that is always changing, whether in fashion, style or music. The pandemic that hit the music industry in 2020 continues to do so in 2021. With the number of COVID-19 cases continuing to rise, it is difficult to predict when the situation will return to normal. The main sources of income for musicians are concerts and other live events. With today’s resections on public events, live performances are virtually non-existent.
Belcastro was one of the few musicians who predicted how the music industry would change due to the pandemic. According to Belcastro, the industry will experience significant changes in 2021. Here is Belcastro’s forecast for upcoming trends in the music industry:
More drive-in concerts: The pandemic has restricted travel and resulted in a ban on conventional live performances to avoid crowds. Since then, musicians have found a way to engage their audiences with drive-thru concerts.
Innovative compositions: More songs will start to be composed by several people rather than by individuals. This way, a song will receive feedback from a mix of talented people before its release. The lyrics in general will become more grounded and more modest to help listeners better connect to the songs.
More frequent outings: As competition on virtual platforms increases, musicians will strive to retain their audiences.
