«Get Going!» Portrait Series 2021
Artists like Imelda Gabs are the reason why pop never goes out of fashion and always moves with the times. She has Belgian and Congolese roots and grew up in Lausanne, Switzerland, where she learned the piano, violin and singing from an early age. After an eventful stage and music career with her debut at the age of 14 at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, two performances at the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival, her participation in Docks’ Proxima project in Lausanne and two self-produced singles/clips released in 2020 and 2021, she is now dedicated to the production of her very first album, which, just like her career, is meant to be daring and surprising.
«Get Going!» has existed as a FONDATION SUISA funding offer since 2018. With this new form of a grant, creative and artistic processes that do not fall within established categories are given a financial jump-start.
