Sparkline is a new platform developed by technology consultancy company Decimal, who mainly work with music clients on development projects.

Blockchain ticketing firm Big Neon is shutting down

Anyone looking for a reminder not to get too carried away with the NFTs bonanza would do worse to look at the fate of some of the blockchain music companies from a few years ago that had big ambitions.

Independent music, not Bollywood, may be India’s global crossover

Spotify CEO Daniel Ek recently told Music Ally that he believes “100% that we’re going to see a rise of Bollywood and new types of Indian music making it into the global scene in the very near future”.
As an Indian journalist who’s been covering Bollywood and other types of Indian music for two over decades, I only half-agree with Ek. I don’t believe Bollywood is going into the global charts any time soon, and I’ll tell you exactly why. But first…

Q1. Who’s the most streamed artist on Spotify in India?

A2. At the end of January this year, his 8.78 million monthly listeners were enough to place him at No.500 in the world.
Spotify doesn’t display artist rankings below that position and last month, even though Singh’s listenership grew to more than nine million users, he fell out of the top 500.
