My research focuses on sound and society in Latin America, with a particular emphasis on popular music in both the Andean region and Brazil. I have studied the relation between highland musicians, media workers, and listeners in Peru, to determine how popular cultural forms shape race and class identities. One of my current projects deals with the international circulation of indigenous Andean music and imagery, and the other with choro music and related practices during Brazil's Belle Epoque.
