World Music Charts - December 2016


World Music Charts - December 2016

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

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.

We recall the first time we met him; during the recordings of "Beat! Apartheid" - Piranha Records very first album - and share with you one of his songs. Enjoy!
