Samuel Horlor

Lecturer in Ethnomusicology | Durham University

Samuel Horlor is Lecturer in Ethnomusicology at Durham University (UK).

His academic interests in street music developed through his doctoral study on Passion Square (jiqing guangchang) street music events in Wuhan (China). This research combined approaches from ethnography, performance analysis and geography, and it led to the book Chinese Street Music: Complicating Musical Community (CUP, 2021).

His current projects take on a global orientation, with the key aim of building collaborations for mixed-methods, multisite investigations of diverse contemporary street music practices and perspectives.
