Díaz Honored by British Forum for Ethnomusicology

The British Forum for Ethnomusicology (BFE) has awarded a commendation to Juan Diego Díaz in its 2022 “Early Career Prize” for his 2020 article, “The Musical Experience of Diasporas: The Return of a Ghanaian Tabom Master Drummer to Bahia,” Latin American Music Review.

Díaz’s article reflects on the construction of transatlantic diasporic identities and the ways in which idealized connections are underpinned by deeply felt experiences of musical performance. The committee enjoyed the way that Díaz used a specific case study to elucidate broader ideas, encompassing reflections on groove, spiritual guidance, geopolitics, and personal journeys.
