SO: On the hunt for Somalia’s forgotten music treasures

Part of the archive of Somali music preserved on cassettes and reels.

In 2015, Berlin-based researcher Nicolas Sheikholeslami compiled Au Revoir Mogadishu Vol 1, a mixtape of Somali music from before the 1988 civil war. Beguiled by this authentic sound, Sheikholeslami and Ostinato Records boss Vik Sohonie travelled to the Horn of Africa to unearth an archive of more than 10 000 cassettes and reels preserved through the war by resolute radio operators and dedicated gatekeepers of Somali culture.

The archive captured the Mogadishu of the 1970s and 1980s, and while a full-fledged compilation album is slated for release this year, part of the archive was posted on the Ostinato Records SoundCloud page last month.

Music In Africa tracked down the dynamic duo of Sheikholeslami and Sohonie and spoke to the latter about the latest compilation of Somali music. Read More…

TZ: Copyright, royalty collection and music piracy in Tanzania

This text provides an overview of music royalty collection in Tanzania, tracing its history from before the country’s independence until the present day, looking in particular at the steps put in place by government, how these actions have been implemented, and the challenges that musicians face in earning royalties.

Historical background (1950s-80s)

The first broadcasting station in Tanzania was Sauti ya Dar es Salaam (Voice of Dar es Salaam), established in 1951. At first, the station could only be heard around Dar es Salaam. In 1955, the services were extended to upcountry and renamed Tanganyika Broadcasting Services. In July 1956 it became Tanganyika Broadcasting Corporation. A few years after independence in 1961, it was renamed Radio Tanzania Dar es Salaam (RTD).

Throughout this period and a few years after independence, RTD paid royalties for the music that was aired. Log-sheets were filled after every song was aired and “needle time” recorded, with contributions paid to the British Performing Rights Society (PRS).  Read more
