World Music Charts - MAY 2016


World Music Charts - MAY 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 her recent album presentation concert that took place on the 27th of April in Berlin, the only thing that we can say for sure is that "Abbar el Hamada" is an album not to be missed!
