Ethnomusicologist

I received a Mmus degree in Ethnomusicology on my field research and photography in both East Africa and the South Pacific. 

My thesis entitled ’Tradition and Change - The People’s Concern’   -  examines whether transculturation effects the musical traditions within an indigenous society. 

In America, as Artist-in-Residence at The Smithsonian Institution’s - 'Museum of African Art',  I  delivered lectures to both  Universities  and Museums throughout the  USA.
