Festivals provide space for both emerging bands and established performers to showcase their talent. Without their support, the African musical landscape would look very different. As the continent’s festival scene continues to grow and new festivals emerge all around, Music In Africa spoke to organizers of various African festivals on what it takes to put together an exciting programme for the audience and what artists need to do to earn a place at the various festivals.

Putting the audience first

Yusuf Mahmoud is the director at East Africa’s longest running festival, Sauti za Busara, which enjoys a reputation as one of Africa’s top music festivals and brings together 40 groups to perform in Zanzaibar each year (until the recent cancellation of its 2016 edition), all performing live. Mahmoud says a good festival programmer respects his audience as being intelligent, includes young and emerging talents alongside big-name artists, promotes diversity and thrills in taking risks. Read more

The problem with African royalty collection bodies

Thirty-two of Africa’s collective management organizations (CMOs) have collected a total of 54 million euros, according to the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers (CISAC). That figure is a dismal 0.7% of the total collections worldwide.

The African Regional Intellectual Property Organization (ARIPO) recently published these findings in a survey on CMOs conducted among its member states. The survey reveals that CMOs have grown in importance globally in their work of collectively administering the mandates from the right holders by negotiating royalties, collecting royalties from users and distributing the royalties to the right holders. See full survey attached below.

It is clear from the ARIPO report that African CMOs need to have a proactive approach to information sharing, portraying the benefits of collective management to rights holders, users and the society at large. Read more

ABOUT ONGEA!

Synopsis

KENYA MUSIC WEEK’s move to rebrand to ONGEA! is based on the need to ensure Increased Sustainability and Relevance of this very important Industry gathering, by Opening it up to a larger Market, thus increasing the Forum’s profile Regionally and Globally.

The move is informed by undifferentiated Music penetration in the Region, marked by increasing acceptance of different Genres of Music across the board. Artists are increasingly receiving Support and Acceptance of their Craft, outside their Countries; a Trend which is Driving the Growth of the Eastern Africa Music Industry.

ONGEA! will be the main Source of new Innovations, Trends and Content for Regional and Global players, who are Setting the Pace for Strategic and focused Growth of the Music &Entertainment Industry in the Eastern Africa Region.
