    Currently, she receives a US Fulbright Scholar award to conduct a research on “Indonesian Islamic Performance in the Context of an Indian Ocean Sound-World.” She revisits her survey of seni music Islam and investigates the routes of performance practices that have migrated around the Indian Ocean and, more specifically, between Java and Sumatra and the Arabian Peninsula.

    She is supported by UIN Syarif Hidayatullah for this project.
