Ramos-Kittrell's monograph Playing in the Cathedral: Music, Race, and Status in New Spain was published by Oxford University Press in 2016. His edited volume Decentering the Nation: Music, Mexicanidad, and Globalization, published in 2020, won the Society for Ethnomusicology’s 2021 Ellen Koskoff Edited Volume Prize.
