Foundation, an official platform where we can publicly endorse and continue to support their work. The artists presented here are selected by our mentors on the basis of their talent, personality and excellence in performance. We endeavour to support them in gaining a foothold in the industry by recommending them to our network, giving them ongoing career advice, while supporting them in their musical development in the long-term."
