That is why, using good relations with festival organizers, promoters, publishing houses, media, producers – Serbia creates music opens additional and new space for young talents from the world of music, and gives them the opportunity to learn from the best. By including all factors of the music industry and recruiting young talents in an action like this, we give enormous support to young people, but also to the overall domestic scene and music creativity. That is actually our mission,” says Zorica Tepić in front of the Serbia creates music platform.
