Meet Nihal

Studying music and pursuing it creatively has steered me towards reading art history and cultural studies as well as absorbing works of fiction. Books allow me to immerse myself in the zeitgeist surrounding musical traditions from different periods and cultures that I love. One day it could be a work of fiction from the beats transporting me to post-war Downtown New York, and the next day it could be an ethnography exploring mysticism in Haitian Vodou. Working at Brazos Bookstore means horizons expand into surprising areas all the time, often with the help of conversations with customers. Come chat with me at the store about books and music!
