Aida Baghernejad is a freelance journalist and ethnographer. She writes on music and food for a number of regional, national, and international publications—and sometimes about both at the same time. Mostly, however, she searches for the political in the sound, on the stage, or on a plate.
She also hosts workshops and events on various academic and political topics. In 2019, she was awarded the International Music Journalism Award for the best written piece of the year and was nominated for the Listen to Berlin award in the category journalism. She usually lives in Berlin, sometimes in London, but mostly on the internet.
