ZEM was born in Ethiopia. She never knew her father and her mother dies when she is three. She ends up in an orphanage from where she is adopted by a Belgian/Dutch family. She grows up in Ghent. From the age of 8, she followed a classical harp training (private student Suzanna Mildonian), with piano as a second instrument. She also obtained a master's degree in sociology (Ugent). At the age of 16 she chooses hip-hop and piano as singer-songwriter and singer, from which a musical taste grows that ranges from soul over pop (with a participation in The Voice of Flanders in 2014) to intimate French chansons
In 2015, she decides to combine all these styles and set out on her own artistic path, doing everything herself. In 2017 she returns to her first, great love: the harp. From then on, everything falls together and she develops a musical style of her own in which classical harp becomes hip-hop and a lovely chanson electronics. In February 2018 she gives her first performance with her harp at the Centrale. In March 2018 she wins the prestigious public award of TV5MONDE at the 'Concours de la Chanson Alliance Française' in The Hague. She is the only finalist who has written a song of her own. "GAND" is about how Ghent and its rebellious history inspires her.
