About

AlexandraPetropoulosI’m a journalist, ethnomusicologist and musician who isn’t nearly as boring as I sound.

Journalist
I am the Deputy Editor and contributor for Songlines, the leading world music magazine based in London, UK. I have had articles published in several publications including The Guardian blog, Wanderlust and Paa Tanzania.

Ethnomusicologist
I completed a postgraduate degree in Ethnomusicology at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in 2011. My dissertation focused on spirit possession music in Zanzibar following field research in kibuki ceremonies.

Musician
I received a BM degree in Music Performance from the University of Southern Maine in 2008 and have performed in numerous ensembles and groups including the Southern Maine Symphony Orchestra (principle flute) and the Mimosa Woodwind Quintet, and I’ve most recently performed with the Oberon Symphony Orchestra.
