DJing is also the germ of interdisciplinary collaborations with artists and organizing concept nights under the name ‘Club Lederhosen.’ Nothing to do with leather, only a tribute to her parents who both used to wear leather pants in the ’80s and the lederhosen thing is related to a joke from her German friends. here more info on bands and organizations she has worked with in the last 13 years.
