The Musicians Union Malawi [MUM] established in the year 1994 and formally registered in May 2002 with the aim of protecting the rights and welfare of musicians. As a music body, it has greatly worked with Copyright Society of Malawi (COSOMA) as body that oversees the collection and distribution of loyalties for production works. MUM has almost 1, 500 members nationwide, however, it has been facing challenges mainly in distribution and promotion of local music and massive growth of piracy. The Union has been working with COSOMA through Cultural Support Scheme (CSS) project to implement capacity-building interventions. It has conducted numerous activities under the Scheme with an ultimate goal of improving capacity building and promotion of Malawian music by creating industry that will be appreciated as a representation of Malawian culture with viable sales and marketing skills.
