Bamako Sounds

Ryan Thomas Skinner

University of Minnesota Press

Chapter 5 interrogates the idea of intellectual property through the shifting politics of culture in postcolonial Mali. Beginning with widespread anxieties about the social and economic value of the arts in an era of private markets and decentralized politics, it presents a local genealogy of music copyright and its criminalized corollary, piracy.
