50th anniversary of Mani Matter’s death – Reissued: It’s Mani Matter 2022 – Radio SRF 3


Whether young or old, his songs are still known across the country, 50 years after his death. The young Swiss music scene wins Mani Matter a little party and revives his songs. A tribute to one of the greats whose work has remained timeless.

50 years after his death, Mani Matter’s songs are still alive, popular, timeless, current. And the playlist can now be supplemented thanks to the SRF 3 project “Reissued: Mani Matter 2022”. Musicians from a wide variety of genres have recorded their favorite song by the Bernese troubadour: they revive the songs in a refreshing, diverse, surprising and unusual way.

There is a documentary about the music videos that will be broadcast on TV on Sunday, November 27 at 21:40 on SRF 1 and can be seen here before it.

The new versions are unique tributes that unfold their magic in different sonic guises. Broadcasters are Crimer, Dabu Fantastic and, Loco Escrito, Lo & Leduc and To Athena, Nativ, Simone Felbers iheimisch and Veronica Fusaro.

There was a linguistic genius at work. Gender equality, which we value today, was not an issue back then.

Mani Matter is a benchmark for everyone who makes dialect and he is also a role model in other respects: throughout his life he strove for more humanity.

Mani Matter’s lyrics are timeless, he manages to convey feelings. That is why he is still an inspiration to rappers, musicians and poets to this day.

He has always managed to reduce big issues and questions to a simple story. Therefore, you can access his songs at any age.

For me Materie is almost a Swiss pioneer of rap. He not only has blatant punchlines, but also good rhymes.

Mani Matter is so timeless because he has repeatedly taken up topics that are current or still are.

What remains for me about Mani Matter are his songs. This is music that will remain popular for another 50 years. I’m excited to see what acts from today will do the same.
