Katie Young is an academic whose PhD thesis explores the influence of Hindi film songs in Tamale, Ghana, from the mid-20th century to the present. She is interested in the study of music, media, and the performing arts in West Africa. Her current research focues on the ways that cellphones shape Islamic soundscapes in majority Muslim West African cities and neighbourhoods. I am also interested in the preservation of tape cassettes as a valuable historical source in West Africa.
