Sheldon devoted most of the 90’s to Latin American Studies at the University of Kansas. During this period he travelled widely throughout Latin America with his studies focused on slave society of the nineteenth century in Latin American countries and how its influence on past music continues to affect the transformation and hybridization of world music today.
