So far Planet 9 has produced a CD in cooperation with „BETONT“ (UdK Berlin) and performed in Jazz Institut Berlin as well as at the Kurt Weill Festival (2016) in Dessau/Germany. This project is outstanding by it’s internationality, diversity, creativity and cosmopolitanism.
It is giving women from all over Europe a platform to share their stories, experiences and discuss political topics. Right now planet 9 contains women from Germany, Denmark, Turkey, Poland, Russia, Belgium, Hungary and the Netherlands who are using the communicative nature of music to convey their message and process their thoughts.
