Rami Stucky

Rami Stucky

CCS (Critical & Comparative Studies)



Rami Stucky was born and raised in Wichita, Kansas, but left when he turned 18 to attend college in the Northeast. In 2013, he moved to Seattle to pursue a career as a rock drummer, but realized he arrived to the city’s local music scene about twenty years too late. In 2016, he enrolled in the University of Virginia’s Critical and Comparative Studies program where he focuses on America’s 1960s bossa nova craze. His father, only half-jokingly, often asks when he will finish his dissertation on “elevator music.”
