Music executive, entreprenuer and humanitarian Inma Grass provides Gone Workabout with a window into a music industry that has changed so much since the advent of downloading, iTunes and now Spotify.Through sharing her story spanning southern Spain, to Ibiza, to America and back again, Inma shows how music has both driven her and has provided both meaning and an opportunity to give back via the Altafonte foundation.It is rare to meet someone who has rubbed shoulders with such greats as Manu Chau, Manuel Garcia (and many others), yet remains true to the spirit of helping artists share their music beyond their borders - while getting paid fairly for it. From being credited with breaking Salsa in the 90s through to being at one point the fastest growing Spanish Hip Hop label, Inma has certainly seen it all.From discovering a newly-arrived Seydu busking on the streets of Madrid, to helping him to a high-flying career as a percussionist and finally to supporting his Diamond Child School in his homeland Sierra Leone, Inma paints a humanist picture of the music industry and leaves you wanting to support your local indie artists.Show mentions:Altafonte: https://altafonte.comAlmashala yoga retreat, Portugal: https://almashala.com/Artist - Seydu: https://seydu.netDiamond Child Shool, Sierra Leone: https://pjhap.wordpress.com/tag/diamond-child-school/Artist - Kiko Veneno: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiko_VenenoArtist - Nano Stern: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nano_SternArtist - Manuel Garcia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manuel_Garc%C3%ADa_(tenor)Artist - Craig Armstrong: https://www.qwant.com/music/artist/craig-armstrong.About my guest:Inma Grass is a Spanish-born music executive, entreprenuer and humanitarian who co-founded Altefonte - a heavyweight in the Latin music world.

This episode of Gone Workabout could not be more relevant. Yet when I sat with Chhika Ob just 3 months ago, on top of the Royal Hotel in Battambang Cambodia I don't think either of us could have imagined what was coming. The shock, isolation, fear and size of this pandemic is unheard of. And so Chhika's message of kindness, compassion and the tale of life growing up in Cambodia is maybe one of the most heartening things you could hear today. May it warm you up as it did me.Chhika is a tour guide, tuk tuk driver and for me, shares a so much we could all learn from.Show mentions:The city of BattambangThe Royal Hotel, BattambangBamboo trainPhare Ponleu Selpak CircusSoksabike bike toursThe city of Siem ReapAnkor Wat - the largest religious monument in the worldThis podcast uses the following third-party services for analysis: Podtrac - https://analytics.podtrac.com/privacy-policy-gdrp
