Discussion and Enactment Law N°20.810
Law N° 20.810 (published April 18th 2015), which determined that the radio stations operating radio broadcasting concessions must issue at least 20% of national music in their daily programming. This measure is linked to Articles 1(a),1(e),1(g),1(h),2.7,6.2(b),6.2(g),6.2(h) and 7 of the 2005 Convention.
This measure is intended to reinvigorate this expression of the national art and labor activity of its creators and exhibitors, and is clearly in the line of supporting national cultural expressions and the development of artistic work. The said initiative is also fully consistent with the Policy Promotion of National Music, by establishing specific points that tend to strengthening the national music scene.
The measure aims to contribute to the protection of our cultural identity in an important artistic aspect, as is the musical creation, facilitating access of chilean musicians to broadcasting and allowing correspondingly that citizens have more choices to meet different expressions they are marginalized from the mainstream media.
