Curriculum Vitae  


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 the sacred song-poetry of Machik Labdrön's Chöd practice to the study of ritual through the lens of performance studies. He also explores musical-meditation rituals that are practiced to maintain individual and community health and the megaconcert genre of global popular music philanthropy. Additionally, his research projects include the historiography of popular music of the Sixties, and George Harrison’s adaptation of South Asian classical music sonorities into “raga rock.”
