{This Planetarymuse is presented by the Groupmuse Foundation’s Planetary Music Movement. A bridge-building endeavor, this movement, guides Groupmuse to overcome the historical dominance of European ethnocentrism within the classical music tradition, by celebrating historical and contemporary musical traditions of the planet, particularly and imminently through the inclusion and celebration of works by artists of African descent.

I had such an amazing and empowering artistic experience with Groupmuse. I hope to perform on this platform again in the future and in person.
