Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I am a postdoctoral researcher in Musicology, working currently on the Academy of Finland funded project "Moving Knowledge: The Changing Embodiments of Cultural Knowledge in Senegalese Sabar Performances". My current research builds on my doctoral thesis “Performing a Tradition in Music and Dance: Embodiment and Interaction in Sabar Dance Events” (2014), which I completed at the University of Tampere. Apart from my work on Senegalese dance and music, I have conducted research on African music and musicians in Finland.
