BERLIN CALLING! Piranha Picks of the Week - Yemenite Songs


Yemen Blues – Tuesday @ Gretchen, see below

Thursday 18 – Sunday 20 OCTOBER

One holds it – the other has to obey it. With the decline of record sales, the copyright has become ever more important for musicians and the industry to make a living – together with the live concert. 4 day info festival "100 Years of Copyright" @ Haus der Kulturen der Welt puts both aspects – copyright / live gigging – on stage in a well balanced mix of panels, lectures, workshops, films etc. PLUS a high profile performance line-up featuring, among others, Den Sorte Skole, Berlin's Zeitkratzer orchestra, Sister Nancy, Mad Professor and Dennis Alcapone – take a look @ him in 1973! Detailed programme here
