Maria Alexandra Urbano, PhD student at NOVA FCSH, received a master's degree from the same school about the use of music in the Portuguese Colonial War in Cabinda, Angola(1970-74) under the guidance of Maria de São José Côrte-Real . She is a DJ and producer of psychedelic trance. She also has a degree in piano and music therapy, domains in which she maintains activity, particularly as a piano teacher. Currently she is working on her PhD on psychedelic trance, studying terminological aspects to understand relation between audible characteristics of melodic and rhythmic samples of psychedelic trance and fandom dynamics, involving fan behavior in different parts of the world through a collaborative ethnography developed in festivals in India, Israel, Brazil, Mexico, USA, Europe, South Africa and Australia, where she performs as a Psytrance DJ.
