Radio Show: Folkways World

19 Jan

After spending the summer as an intern at Smithsonian Folkways Recordings in Washington, D.C., my No. 1 goal for my trip home to California in the fall was to sub a radio show at KDVS. I wanted to share all my Folkways favorites, all the new music I had learned about.

While Folkways is best known for its collection of American folk music (i.e. Pete Seeger, Lead Belly, Woody Guthrie), I was introduced to it at KDVS as an incredible source for regional folk music from all over the world. In this show I focused mostly on Africa, Asia and South America.
