Profile Summary

I am an Ethnomusicologist in the School of Arts & Media. My main research is focussed on the creation of musical identities, Cape Jazz and Afrocentricity - and its application to African situations (as opposed to North American frameworks).  Further research interests include diasporic art forms, with a focus on Capoeira, as practitioner, and the music found in Capoeira (Musical organisation and the history contained within the song lyrics).

 

My research tags thus include: African Music, Africanisms, Afrocentricisms, Afro-Futurisms, Cape Jazz, Capoeira and related Brazilian art forms, Compositions, Concepts of being African, or being Black, Diasporic Musics, Ethnomusicology, Ethnicity, Fieldwork Methodologies, Globalisation, IdentityStudies, Intangible Heritage studies, Jazz and Related Musics, Multi-Culturism, Popular Music in Africa, Popular Music Composition, Post-Black, Race, South African Jazz, South African Popular Music and World Music.
