Smithsonian Global Sound for Libraries is a large collection of international music with full-length audio streams. This database is brand new and was recently acquired by Duke Libraries. It covers voices from people all around the world. Listen to old time country music, blues, recordings from African tribes, Broadway hits and much more!
Reasons to check it out, besides that it is now free to Duke students and staff:
- includes complete audio and video selections, media, educational resources and detailed liner notes.
- Search by country, culture group, genre, language or even instrument.
- Develop your own playlists.
- Create a user name and log-in to store favorites in a “My Playlists” folder.
- One stop shopping! You can buy albums you like directly from this site.
Enjoy! Browse all different types of music and put off writing that paper for a little while…
