Valais, or more formally the Canton of Valais, is one of the 26 cantons forming the Swiss Confederation. Valais is situated in the southwestern part of the country. It borders the cantons of Vaud and Bern to the north, the cantons of Uri and Ticino to the east, as well as Italy to the south and France to the west. It is one of the three large southern Alpine cantons, along with Ticino and the Grisons. It is a bilingual canton. French and German are its two official languages.
What is Valais Social Hub you possibly think? They are a group of like-minded friends from a variety of different backgrounds and origins who shares ideas and speak of their visions. The Valais Social association specializes in the organization, planning, and implementation of music and cultural events. These guys promote social exchange on a local and international level and aim to showcase and push artists and creators from home and abroad.
The short story of how it happened is quite magical. A friend introduced his friend to the team of Plazma in Kyiv, Ukraine. An instant mindset connection got in place, invisible frequencies sparked that night. At that time was a peak for the team planning the Fabio Florido event in London, and as no surprise this friend named Karolis came over to dance his night away in the party that is in place.
After living the weekend in the city’s clubbing scene Karolis, asked if we could come and do the same in his beloved Switzerland Alps. Three months later we had our first showcase in Zermatt with Daniella da Silva, Nennat Omen, and Josh Vincenzo, this weekend was March 8th. The week before global lockdown. Without anyone having a clue about it, we managed to pull together a crazy event, make an unofficial season closing, and find friends and family in the Alps of Switzerland.
But nothing stops there.
One of the Plazma members managed to spend his summer in the Zermatt city with the team-to-be Valais Social. After numerous events, nights out, after parties, and hikes, with a little bit of experience and encouragement, and mainly love for electronic music it still boiling. Due to the pandemic situation, no events obviously are allowed, so the swiss team got together with Zermatt Bier Matterhorn Brauer and been playing to the community, to all of us with the help of technologies.
So I will better stop here and invite you to check out their new website which includes all the latest video streams, more about their idea and previous works. If you are from around I strongly recommend following this community as they will set a new standard for entertainment in Valais.
