viene realizando investigaciones antropológicas de campo en los Andes centrales del norte del Perú desde 1996. Desde la ecología histórica enfocó las estrategias de asentamiento indígenas en las serranías de los Conchucos en el norte del Perú (M.A., Universidad Libre de Berlín, 1998) lo que dio paso a indagar el emplazamiento en el paisaje de la arquitectura mortuoria y ceremonial como una interfaz entre territorios e identidades (Ph.D., Universidad de Cambridge, 2005). Las prácticas rituales y dimensiones simbólicas del manejo del agua, incluyendo los paisajes sonoros de las trompetas en forma de caracol wayllakepa, son actuales temas de investigación (Investigador Marie Curie, Comisión para la Arqueología de Culturas no Europeas, Bonn).

is an ethnomusicologist known mainly for comparative and historical studies of North American Indian music. His master’s thesis (UCLA 1975) focused on melodic patterns in music of the Japanese shakuhachi(bamboo flute). From 1977 to 1980, he lived and conducted doctoral research on the Yurok Indian Reservation in Northwestern California. During the 1980s he directed projects returning sound recordings and other documents from museums and archives to the rural Indian communities from which they were originally collected. In the course of this work – intended primarily for purposes of cultural preservation and repatriation of tribal heritage – Keeling became fascinated by the possibilities of archival research and developed a deep respect and personal connection to early anthropologists such as Sapir, Kroeber, and others in the Boasian tradition. His book Cry for Luck(1992) interprets contemporary Yurok and Hupa Indian ritual music in relation to historical evidence of earlier spiritual practices which shaped its distinctive style. His bibliography of North American Indian Music(1997) contains a history of research on the subject and describes 1,500 sources published between 1535 and 1995. Keeling also studied music and culture of the Ainu and other northern peoples as a Senior Fulbright scholar in Japan. He was a professor in the Ethnomusicology Program at UCLA from 1988 to 1994 and also held positions at UC Berkeley and with the National Endowment for the Arts (Folk Arts Program).
