I am the Deputy Editor and contributor for Songlines, a leading world music magazine based in London, England.
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.
I am a classically-trained, professional flautist, and enjoy a varied career including session work for film, studio recordings, orchestral work, small ensemble performance and music for special events. 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. I currently teach private flute lessons in Central London.
