A big thank you to everyone who joined us in Barcelona and Madrid. It's wonderful to have the opportunity to bring everyone together in a social atmosphere and reinforce the warmth and camaraderie of our Artists, which never fails to amaze me wherever we meet in the world. A very big thank you to Alfredo Mendez, Manel Punti and all the team at Music Distribucion for their continued support of the Artist Program, which is very much appreciated by Zildjian and the Artists in Spain."
