    I am currently a Ph.D. student of Ethnomusicology at the University of California, Los Angeles. I received my B.M. from the University of Louisville and M.A. at UCLA. My research interest is the music of the African diaspora, but I specifically study African American religious music and children’s music of West Africa. I am interested in the intersections between music and community construction, struggle, identity, and symbolism. In addition to studying ethnomusicology, I also play dizi (chinese flute) with Kunqu opera and practice West African dancing and drumming.
