Radio Bamakan rural radio project coordinator, Ngolo Koulibaly, discusses the impact of community radio in Bamako, Mali. In order to avoid detection from authorities Radio Bamakan originally operated as an underground radio programme that was broadcasted in short segments from different locations. Today it is an established programme that records in the studio and conducts interviews on the ground. It has become an essential news and agriculture resource for the community reaching a wide network of residents and facilitating communication.
