WORLD MUSIC CHARTS - JUNE 2016

Each month Piranha Records presents to you the top world music video and album releases, as seen through the eyes of World Music Network's Video Chart, the World Music Charts Europe and Transglobal Music Chart.

The World Music VIDEO Charts are brought to you on a monthly basis by WORLD MUSIC NETWORK, the winner of the WOMEX label award 2013. Piranha Records & Publishing supports World Music Network by acting as its sub-publisher for Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Radio DJs from 24 European countries collect each month their top albums for the World Music Charts Europe, which then leads to the annual WOMEX label award. The release of the charts is supported by the World Music Workshop of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and offers to EURORADIO members the opportunity to exchange music, experiences and projects.

The Transglobal Music Chart is the new kid on the block. It was conceived in 2015 as an open worldwide network of music critics, who are working on a regular basis, spreading world, roots and traditional music. In early 2016 it already included experts from 28 countries on all 5 continents.

After seeing them live in concert last month in Berlin, there was no doubt on what our suggestion would be. Konono No.1 introduced us the strange and spectacular electro-traditional mixtures which are being concocted in the suburbs of Kinshasa in Congo. Their latest album "Konono No.1 Meets Batida" has been among the top ones in the world music charts for the past three months - and it is definately worth listening!
