Personlig profil

Information om forskning och undervisning

I am a grant-funded researcher in Musicology, working currently on the project "World Wide Women - Female Musicians Crossing Borders and Building Futures" that combines research and artistic work. The project, which I also lead, studies and supports the agency of women in their own communities and in the globally connected music scenes, focusing in particular on transcultural phenomena and collaboration in music.

I completed my doctoral thesis in Ethnomusicology, “Performing a Tradition in Music and Dance: Embodiment and Interaction in Sabar Dance Events” (2014) at the University of Tampere. In my subsequent research projects, I have continued to study the sabar tradition in Senegal, but I have also conducted research on African music and musicians in Finland as well as on the anti-racist activities of musicians.

Apart from my research topics, my teaching focuses on central themes of ethnomusicology: the research history and methodology of ethnomusicology, questions reltaed to ethnographic fieldwork and writing, the connections of dance and music and their research, and performance analysis.
