Our primitive goal? We envisage forging independent music a standalone industry in India. We are committed to that rudimentary goal of building a realm where music artists are the superheroes of their craft and through which, they can treasure and narrate all their stories; be it countenance of ye’ old or the scenes from the contemporary.
By leaguing with you and the artist in you, we envision to help your music flow in it’s truest form in innumerable (dis)guises. The ‘penny (rather the $) part’ is taken care of by our up and running revenue monetization model(s), signing your band – wagons for live gigs and marketing your music on multiple online and additional platforms to ensure your music is heard on these city streets and computer screens.
Our parent company Silly Monks Entertainment Pvt. Ltd., a Multi-Channel Network on YouTube, currently manages over 800 YouTube channels and rakes in a whopping 150 million+ views per month. By sacrosanctiously leveraging the digital distribution and aptitude driven capabilities, Monkstar Music skyrockets the avant-garde – budding artistes toward infinite possibilities.
This synergistic partnership with Monkstar, along with a robust alliance of all the above mentioned creatives for you, you’re just a step away from spearheading your dream(s). And ours as well. Is someone getting the best of you?
