Zaho de Sagazan | A double win at the 2024 MME Awards!
This year’s prestigious Music Moves Europe (MME) Awards ceremony saw French artist Zaho de Sagazan take home a resounding victory, as the singer-songwriter won both the Grand Jury Award and the Public Choice Award, thereby confirming her success on the European stage.
The ceremony, which took place last Thursday (18th January) at the Eurosonic Noorderslag (ESNS) festival in the Dutch city of Groningen, gave pride of place to the diversity and the creativity of Europe’s musical landscape. Meanwhile, the five other award winners were Bulgarian Cartrader, freekind., Giift, Ralphie Choo and yunè pinku, who are all emerging artists that have contributed to enriching the continent’s music scene with their unique sounds.
As a reward for winning the Grand Jury Award, de Sagazan received €10,000 and a green touring voucher worth €5,000, while her Public Choice Award victory saw her earn €5,000 and a Deezer session, thereby underlining both the jury’s and the public’s recognition of her talent.
