Victoria Netanus Grubbs is a black feminist sound theorist and abolitionist educator. Her current book project, Kumva Meze Neza: Sounding Blackness in Rwanda examines how popular Rwandan music works in the aftermath of genocide to produce a collective social body. Drawing on six years of participant observation amongst Rwandan music industry professionals and their audiences, her work demonstrates how shared investments in the sensory experience of blackness bring forth a collective interpreting body that refutes both the possibility of and the desire for the individual human subject.

 

Victoria is also the founder of the recording studio and label GMC Records in Kigali, Rwanda.
