l'Industrie Musicale au Senegal

Essai d'Analyse

edited by Saliou Ndour

Des logiques d’actions plurielles et différentes dimensions sous-tendent la construction du fait musical au Sénégal, produite par plusieurs pôles d’acteurs interagissant entre des structures contraignantes et une relative autonomie. Dans une industrie musicale marquée par de profondes mutations socioculturelles et socioéconomiques, « informel de la musique » et processus de « formalisation » cohabitent de manière problématique. L’industrie musicale, en expansion, est dès lors appelée à s’organiser selon un cadre véritablement formel. La question des droits d’auteur à travers les règles de rémunération et leur application est alors instamment posée. Parallèlement, la politique culturelle de l’Etat, ainsi que les liens, selon diverses modalités, entre champ musical et politique, sont passés en revue. Cet essai tente de poser un certain nombre de questions et se présente en définitive comme une invite à la réflexion et à l’action

Driven by different actors evolving between both a structured framework and a relative autonomy, music in Senegal is based on different logics and dimensions. The musical industry is impacted by entrenched socio-cultural and socio-economic mutations defined by a problematic co-habitation between "informal music" and the process of "formalization" itself. As a result, the only alternative left to the growing musical industry is to structure itself within a formal framework, leading instantly to issues of copyright and royalty settlements, their implementation. Concurrently, the state's policies toward culture along with the linkages between the musical sphere and politics, which are based on various modalities, are also put under review. This study attempts to pose a certain number of questions and ultimately presents itself as an invitation to reflection and action.
