Praia, Feb 23 (Inforpress) – The Cabo Verdean Society of Authors (SOCA) made available 500 thousand escudos to support 30 artists, between 2020 and 2021, to deal the difficulties created by the pandemic of the new coronavirus.
The information was forwarded this Monday to Inforpress by the president of this collective management entity, Daniel Spínola, reporting that in 2020 they carried out about 15 music activities, with a view to raising revenues to support artists in “precarious situation”.
“In 2020 we support 20 artists with the amount of almost 300 thousand escudos and this year we already support some artist who due the COVID-19 were without acting and without income”, he said.
