Hi, I’m Adriana.
Music is a lifelong passion. As a cello student for 17 years, I tried Yo-Yo Ma’s Strad, played Pachelbel’s Canon at a gazillion weddings and performed (once) at Carnegie Hall. Injuries put an end to my classical-music career, but when I starting dabbling in global grooves, I began to see music in a whole new way.
My forthcoming book explores music as medicine. Drawing from neuroscience, evolutionary biology and and anthropology, I’ll show that music isn’t just entertainment – it’s an age-old system to boost human health, help us bond with each other (even at a chemical level) and add joy and meaning to life.
