MUSIC: the closing down of the two main Malian producers was announced by the directors of the societies MALI K7 SA and Seydoni Mali. The 150 employees were laid off.

“We can not hold out any more. We work only three to four days per month. Today, more than 99% of the tapes are pirated” said Philippe Berthier the Director of MALI K7 SA on March 20. In Bamako, a legal tape costs 1.000 FCFA (1,5€) whereas a pirated tape costs 600 to 700 FCFA (0,91 € to 1,07€).
