Filippo Bonini Baraldi is principal researcher at the Instituto de Etnomusicologia (INET-md) of NOVA University, Lisbon, where he leads the research group Ethnomusicology and Popular Music Studies. He is also an associate member of the Centre de Recherche en Ethnomusicologie (CREM-LESC, Paris Nanterre University). His researches on music, emotion, and health, based on long-term fieldwork in Romania, Italy, and Brazil, are strongly interdisciplinary and combine methods of ethnomusicology, music computing, and cognitive sciences.
He was awarded the thesis prize by the Quai Branly Museum (2011), the Bartók prize for his film Plan-séquence d’une mort criée (2005), and a prize by the Charles Cros Academy for his book Tsiganes, musique et empathie (Éditions de la Maison des sciences de l’homme, 2014). The English version of the latter, Roma Music and Emotion (Oxford University Press, 2021), has been awarded the ICTM book prize (honourable mention) and the William A. Douglas Prize in Europeanist Anthropology.
