New Resource! Smithsonian Global Sound!

The UWM Libraries have subscribed to Smithsonian Global Sound! This is a wonderful resource that includes nearly everything in Smithsonian Folkways, plus music from a number of other record labels that now fall under Smithsonian's auspices.
  • Music from 169 countries from around the world
  • Over 1,000 distinct genres and sub-genres available
  • Over 1,400 cultural groups represented
  • Over 450 languages represented
  • Data on 100,000s of artists and ensembles 

UWM users can get to it through the Music Library's "Database" tab on the Music Library website or the Libraries-wide "Resources AtoZ" page.
