ER: The live music scene in Eritrea

Revelers at a music concert in Eritrea.

Modern Eritrean music has been influenced by the establishment of the American army’s Kagnew radio station, which started broadcasting in the 1940s. It was later modernized when local bands emerged in the early 1960s.

Another major contributor to the development of Eritrean music was the establishment of Mahber Theatre Asmara (Asmara Theatre Association) in 1961. Many of today’s legends in Eritrean music emerged during this era, notable for its tense political climate. Bands affiliated to the Eritrean Theatre Association and Mahber Dekebat (Association of the Indigenous) formed at this time and set the standard for future generations.

Today, half a century later, the live music scene in Eritrea has been revitalized with the emergence of new trends, including the so-called ‘piano bar’ culture that sees many of the old jazz and blues classics revisited. Read more

ER: Copyright, royalties and piracy in the Eritrean music industry

Eritrean artist Abraham Afeweki.

Lack of effective copyright regulatory bodies and a relatively new copyright protection scheme means that Eritrean artists have not been able to earn revenues from their craft. This text highlights copyright development as well as music piracy as it relates to the Eritrean music industry.

Copyright

As of January 2017, Eritrea was not party to any of the four major international treaties related to copyright: the Berne Convention, the Universal Copyright Convention (UCC), the Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) and the World Intellectual Property Organization Copyright Treaty (WCT).

Eritrea’s domestic legislation covers copyright in a basic manner.  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.
