Ioanida Costache

I am an ethnomusicologist, a violinist and a documentary filmmaker. My current research explores issues of race and ethnicity, performance/construction of identity, affect, cultural memory, trauma, and history as they intersect in Romani musico-oral traditions of Romania. Drawing on a wide repertoire of Romani repertoires, including Holocaust songs and communist-era popular music, my dissertation traces how a markedly Romani sonic-subjectivity forged through musical expression is deeply imbricated in the project of cultural healing. Before coming to Stanford, I earned a B.A.
