How Streaming Breathes New Life Into Music

One unexpected side-effect of the popularity of streaming platforms is that countries that previously had either a very small and probably corrupt music industry, or effectively none at all, are now seeing local musicians being paid for the first time in their lives. This is of course great news for the individuals who are finally being rewarded for their talent and hard work, but looking at the larger picture, it is good news for everyone who loves music. We are currently right at the beginning of the streaming era but with such benefits already becoming evident, what else might we see appearing, and how will the global industry be affected by this redistribution of wealth towards the creative sector?
