The Swiss Music Awards, a flagship music event in Switzerland, take place this Wednesday, May 8. The ceremony aims to provide an overview of the country’s diversity and musical talents. This annual event rewards the most listened to Swiss artists. But why are the awarded artists so often unknown to us in French-speaking Switzerland?

The Swiss Music Awards ceremony does not just reward commercial success; it also reflects the diverse facets of Swiss music, ranging from Ticino psychedelic pop to French-speaking urban artists. Karine Vouillamoz, anchor at Option Musique, underlines the importance of this diversity.

“The German-speaking Swiss are much more numerous. They have much greater purchasing or listening power. This demographic reality therefore influences not only the nominations but also the winners of the event,” she indicates.

If a star is an artist who is talked about a lot in the media, then yes, there are some in Switzerland.

This episode of Point J is also an opportunity to question the notion of “star” in the Swiss music industry. “If a star is an artist who is talked about a lot in the media, then yes, there are some. However, the definition can vary and artistic quality is not measured solely by media visibility,” specifies Mathias Moure Ares, Tataki music referent.

As for urban music, you will discover, thanks to Mathias Moures Ares, the list of artists to absolutely listen to today. The opportunity to check if your favorite is there.
