Laurence Desarzens is an important figure in the development of the Swiss music scene.
Committed to alternative culture and more particularly to music, (from her rather “punk” beginnings to legendary hip-hop evenings at the Rote Fabrik in Zürich), she began by organizing concerts : from her rather “punk” beginnings to legendary hip-hop evenings at the Rote Fabrik in Zürich. She is also known as manager of the - at that time - newly founded Young God. Now president of Swiss Music Export, Laurence continues to provide her support and experience to the new Swiss scene. It should be noted in passing that one of her latest projects is "Téléphoner", a platform to promote exchanges among cultural players in times of health restrictions in collaboration with Helvetiarockt and Say Hi!

 

It’s an inspiring discussion, from anecdotal recollections of the Youngs Gods' first trip to London to more economic and political themes, and the worldwide reputation of the Swiss music industry. Finishing off with a burst of optimism and hope for the future and for the next musical generation!
