Tucker Wiedenkeller

Writer, musicologist, and musician focusing on the Middle East and Mediterranean. He has spent years living in Egypt, studying, working in the music scene, and writing about its music both as a journalist and as an academic researcher. He is particularly interested in the confluence of traditional and contemporary styles and the manifestation of trance and ecstasy in modern, technological contexts. He plays multiple instruments. If not in Cairo or Istanbul, he is likely in the Sonoran Desert.
