Tjoon - free education & tech tools for South African independent musicians

Finn MacKinnon likes to find solutions to problems. He's a dreamer, an entrepreneur, a musician, and co-founder of a new platform called Tjoon. It brings free education and tech tools to help South African independent musicians manage their copyrights and careers and earn royalties from the music. It's a beautiful colab between music and tech.

This episode is all about arming yourself with knowledge to go out and tackle the world of music business things. DIY for the win.

As Finn says "I think the ball is firmly in our court. We've got to educate ourselves, we've got to take control over our rights, we've got to take control over our industry. And we've got to make sure that we get paid. Because, as we've seen, no one else is going to do it for us."
