My research interests include Chicana feminist theory, Chican@ music, transnational musical dialogues and feminist development theory. I have conducted oral histories and collaborative music and dance compositions with the feminine presence in the tradition of the son Jarocho music of Veracruz, Mexico. As a music practitioner and community organizer building on the work of East LA based Quetzal, informs my scholarly analysis of the importance of music, creative expression, and culture production as important tools in social justice movements.
