Genevans are proud and well known for their international spirit. Three young musicians decided to share their love for the city by recording a special composition named “Geneva”. SUISSEPIC was given some of the details.

The musicians are Geni Deli, Stefano Polastri, and Jaumesse. These three musicians originate from different places, but now reside in Switzerland. They are united by the idea of Geneva’s cultural diversity, and have decided to celebrate that diversity in song. The main goal of their project is to remind people how important it is to learn from each other.

The musicians decided to launch a crowdfunding campaign to unite Swiss society around the idea of a cultural and language exchange. More information is available at WEMAKEIT

The amount required for their campaign is CHF 3,000, which will be split between the recording studio and the filming and editing of the video. Half of the money raised will be donated to an organization’s course called “On va parler ensemble”. This organization is based in Geneva, and provides supports to newcomers as they integrate themselves into Geneva’s city life. The organization also focuses on helping newcomers learn French with the international groups.

Geni Deli: Geneva’s Musical Tourbillon

Geni Deli, a Hungarian who was born in Zurich, moved with her family to Geneva when she was 3 years old. As a teenager, Geni started to perform and sing with rock bands. Living in the diplomatic capital of Europe, Geni has had the opportunity of being exposed to an array of cultures and languages. As a result, this talented young lady has been involved in a crowd-funded musical project called “Geneva”, which is aimed at praising Geneva’s diversity. SUISSEPIC had the opportunity to sit down talk with Geni and get to know her better, especially about her style and the Swiss musical culture.

Let there be Rock. How to make Geneva sway
