Piranha is an independent record & publishing label, based in Berlin-Kreuzberg. We started as part of the world music movement in the late 1980s, with a focus on African, Gypsy and Jewish music - everything the Nazis hated. Since then, we have stayed in tune with our original vision, introducing fresh sounds and artists from the world to the world, mastering the ever changing challenges of the music industry following digitilisation, while remaining a significant player in the global underground music scene.

We are part of Piranha Arts, our creative mothership cruising through all kinds of walls. From the very start, music and cultural diversity have been our driving forces to increase the value of crossing borders - be they cultural, political or commercial.
