Kera Washington is a musician, educator, and applied ethnomusicologist. She has been performing and teaching music, using Boston as her base, for almost three decades. She found her first love, percussion, in college (while studying biology), and has continued to explore connected African diasporic music-cultures, which has become her life’s work and practice. She is the founder of Zili Misik, an all-female, multi-ethnic, Boston-based world music ensemble that retraces routes of forced exile and cultural resistance through diasporic rhythm and song, through performances and workshops, and through Project Misik.
