Prof. Jeffrey Cupchik's research is focused on ethnomusicology, historiography, ethnography, Diaspora studies, Buddhist studies, ritual studies, and popular music. His interests range from Tibetan Buddhist liturgical ritual chant and song-poetry to the performing arts; and from musically-guided meditation rituals that maintain individual and community health to the megaconcert genre of global popular music philanthropy. His research projects also include the historiography of popular music of the Sixties, and George Harrison’s adaptation of South Asian classical music sonorities into “raga rock.”
