Dozens of freelance musicians from various styles of music, among them many popular names, have sent an open letter to Prime Minister Boyko Borissov demanding that an adequate mechanism be drawn up for assisting them in the conditions of pandemic.

They point out that all sectors in the country which have been affected have received some kind of compensations, whereas freelance musicians have received no protection. They emphasize that many of them have been left with no income whatsoever indefinitely.

“Music is not a decorative luxury to be enjoyed when times are good. What is lost now will be difficult to recover later,” they write.
