I'm a Social scientist, ethnomusicologist and content editor currently living in Portugal. In wonderful and sunny Lisbon I am focusing on my PhD in Ethnomusicology (UNL/FCSH). At Global Voices I collaborate as a write and translator of posts in Portuguese. I also like to suggest posts related to culture. It was during Global Voices Summit in 2010, in Chile, that I discovered the world as a small village.
