Can I get a Witness? 30 Years, 30 Artists, 30 TitlesYes, we can! Get a witness and listen to music from all over the world, one piece at a time, in a single scintillating session of two and a bit hours. Local roots and international hybrids. Tradition and avant garde. Spiritual ecstasy and zest, political activism, purely psycho-physical dance crazes: Piranha Records has had it all for 30 solid years now – and counting! From its maiden PIR1 release „Beat! Apartheid“ in 1987 to the the Semer Ensemble’s 2016 debut, Piranha offers a continuous flow of first-class music. From across continents, dozens of countries, all kinds of styles. From mbira queen Stella Chiweshe to Fanfare Ciocărlia‘s turbo brass from the sticks of Zece Pracjini. From spearheading new klezmer with the Klezmatics to champion athlete-cum-semba superstar Bonga. From international wedding orchestrator Ali Hassan Kuban to Slovenian pop wizard Magnifico and many more.
