Speaker bio: 

I am a Cultural Sociologist, Theorist and Methodologist. I developed a research method to analyse and understand music for the social science and cultural studies fields (Musicological Discourse Analysis – MDA). I developed a theory on Black music and spirituality in live performance/clubbing spaces (AmunRave Theory). I am Media Reviews Editor for the Global Hip Hop Studies Journal. I enjoy articulating Black cultural experiences. In my capacity as a Sound Therapist/Healer (specialising in tuning forks) I apply meditation and sound for healing and therapeutic purposes in my ‘I Run The Sound System’ #IRTSS practice.
