Christina Azahar is a Salvadoran-American researcher, musician, and teacher born and raised in Milledgeville, GA. She completed her PhD in Ethnomusicology at UC Berkeley where she spent six years researching and teaching classes on music, feminist activism, and racial justice movements across the United States and Latin America.
Christina's passion for facilitating intercultural dialogue through music, literature, and the arts has led her to travel widely across Central and South America conducting interviews, studying local histories, and helping document and organize music festivals and other cultural events. As a teacher in the humanities, she loves creating collaborative, interdisciplinary activities that allow students of all ages to discover their voice and learn how to listen empathetically to the world around them. When not at home in her garden or spending time with her husband and cat, you can find Christina hiking, biking, trying to learn rock climbing, or practicing her saxophone.
