Lifeline For Buskers At Tourism Spots

The Selangor State is mulling on a proposal to place Buskers and Street musicians at specific toursits spots in order for these individuals to get  better response from the public in terms of income. 

According to the State Culture and Heritage Exco, the move is to help those affected by Covid-19 generate income who are now finding it difficult to find response in their usual spots. 

"Discussions are still ongoing and maybe buskers will be stationed in the tourist area early next year," said Borhan Aman Shah.

The Selangor government has allocated a total of RM250,000 to help musicians registered under state clubs or associations affected by the pandemic. Efforts through Kita Buskers Selangor began by placing them at selected vaccination centers (PPVs) including four mega PPVs under the federation on 15 August.

A total of 720 street musicians were assisted through the project with participants receiving a sum of consolation money in addition to public collection to continue living.
