The Smithsonian Version of I-Tunes...

Until November 23, Alexander Street Press is making Smithsonian Global Sounds freely available... No passwords or trial sign-ups are necessary... users simply visit and they are immediately connected to the entire database.

You can choose your favorite sounds from 35,000 tracks listed by categories-American Folk, Blues, Bluegrass, Old Time Country, American Indian, World, Jazz, Classical & Broadway, Spoken Word & Sounds, or Children's. You can also browse by artist (Woody Guthrie, Lead Belly, Mahalia Jackson, and others), cultural group, country (more than 150 countries are represented), instrument (piano, guitar, aerophone, hordophone, and others), or other fields. Then, simply click to listen to the music over the Internet. Personal playlists, liner notes, and other features will all be available with the free trial.

Rock on, Smithsonian and Alexander Street Press!
