From then on, we decided to create this association in order to participate in cultural exchanges between the two countries. Don Trotti founded the association in 2017 in Switzerland and Selecta Hans in the Gambia.
As a result, several projects have begun; support for artists, organization of concerts, tours, radio show, musical collaboration, copyright and much more.
We decided to build a recording studio in Sukuta so that we could meet the demand of our active members. Construction of the studio was completed in 2021.
Don Trotti went alone in The Gambia in order to carry out administrative tasks for the association in place. This new step will legalize the status and other of the Swiss Gambia Association
A tour was organized with a new team of volunteers and including Don Trotti, Natty-Nat, DJ Postman & Legal Sound
we have for the first time brought a Gambian artist to Switzerland in our city Geneva
The 3rd edition made us cross Gambia then Senegal from Casamance to Dakar. The Gambian, Senegalese and Swiss teams were in full force. More than 12 employees participated in the realization of this tour.
This second edition took us to Saly in Senegal with part of the team of volunteers. We started the construction of our studio based in Sukuta.

In all the projects that we maintain, we do so in a family spirit. Everyone contributes their time and knowledge to bring a stone to our daily tasks. We are all equal and fairness goes without saying and is seen in everyday life with our members.
There are several types of membership :
Being an active member means that he participates in the assembly, is a musician, is a sound technician, an accountant, etc. and is active in carrying out the tasks of SGA.
Active members have the opportunity to support the association by taking out a monthly subscription which will reduce the price of our services in order to support them in their project(s) without money being a brake on their career.
Here are the optional monthly prices with the different package :
all free Members of SGA = Give you 10% off all the service
Mi wanna Start = Give you 20% off all the service = D200 or CHF10.-
Let’s make it = Give you 30% off all the service = D350 or CHF20.-
Wanna Work Hard = Give you 40% off all the service = D800 or CHF50.-
Being a passive member means that he comes to the concert, he wants to receive emails about the latest musical news or the next shows of active members.
We are actually (2022) 53 members from Switzerland and The Gambia.
