free awesome music

Filed under: — adrian @ 10:29 am

starting a few days ago, you can get a free trial of the Smithsonian Global Sound website. The promotion runs from Oct. 24 to November 23. Smithsonian Global Sound has something like 35,000 songs, most of which are field recordings from around the world. You can sort by type of music and instrument and make playlists on the site. I could make a playlist of all the bagpipe music they have from Europe, for instance.

You can’t download the files but you can stream all the music you want.

    Is this different music than the mp3s that used to be downloadable from You know, the “Dust Bowl Collection” and all that?

    I’m not sure. This is basically the entire catalog of Smithsonian Folkways which is, I think, a separate, but partially overlapping, collection from the Library of Congress recordings.
