After the success of another Southern African Music Rights Organisation NPC (SAMRO) CEO Music Industry Roundtable discussion in Mpumalanga, we are pleased to announce that the latest leg of this information-sharing session will be held in eThekwini on Friday, 19 May 2017. The session will take place at the Durban Playhouse from 10H00 until 14H00.

Durban takes the baton from Nelspruit, where SAMRO held a successful session in March on music consumption and the latest available channels for music promotion.

 

The concept of rotating music industry roundtable events was born out of a need to host nationwide conversations that could elicit meaningful input and help develop the South African music industry. SAMRO saw a great need for such a platform, to facilitate regular engagement among those who contribute to the wellbeing of the local music industry.

 

Since the roundtable discussions began last year, industry representatives including the SABC’s Kaizer Kganyago and Nomvuyiso Batyi of the Independent Communications Authority of SA; music legends Ray Phiri, Gabi le Roux, Arthur Mafokate and Sipho Makhabane; and representatives from Kaya FM, Ligwalagwala FM and Rise FM have been among the participants.

 

“Hosting this session just two months after a successful stop in Nelspruit suggests we are on a roll, and we are delighted to be taking the forthcoming meeting to Durban. We hope for an even larger turnout and we promise to have another great panel of experts to share their know-how on issues affecting the industry,” says Tiyani Maluleke, SAMRO’s General Manager: Marketing.

 

As was the case at previous gatherings, in eThekwini, SAMRO will address members’ concerns and the topical issues of music airplay and local content quotas. SAMRO’s acting Group CEO, Rev. Abe Sibiya will once again take part in the discussions and share his vast knowledge of the industry and of SAMRO’s operations.

If you are based in or around Durban, this is also your opportunity to engage with SAMRO on topics relating to membership and royalties.
