GLOBAL SOUNDS FROM SWITZERLAND
Switzerland is a country of immigration, amply represented in its productions - where Swiss folk music collides with Balkan rhythms and punk meets Peruvian chicha. Commissioned by FONDATION SUISA and the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia, curator Roberto Haçaturyan (artlink) set out on an exploratory tour “for the unheard, post-migrant, transcultural sounds of Switzerland” in the COVID-19-year 2020. „Along this journey, I uncovered musical gems that, in my view, more than merit their place on international playlists.“ The compilation SWISS MUSIC – WORLD VI offers a prime opportunity to discover sounds from across the world, from the small corner that is Switzerland.
The 17 chosen tracks for the SWISS MUSIC – WORLD VI compilation give a great insight into the surprisingliy diverse range of current Swiss global & folk music.
