Smithsonian Folkways Radio

A world of music in streaming sound. After I followed the Kora Trail to the Smithsonian Folkways website and Foday Musa Suso, I clicked on their Radio Player and spent the better part of the evening immersed in the music of our world. China, Africa, Mexico, American roots, and more. I was reminded of many wonderful events and places from my past, our shared past, as well as hopes for future travels and experiences. It was dreamy.

Do you know Lonnie Johnson? If not, or even if you do, do yourself a favor and lend his music an ear

If you haven't tasted the worldly treats from the Smithsonian Folkways catalog, do yourself a favor and listen in on their Radio. When you hear something you really dig, clicking on the album title brings you to the page where you can make it yours by buying the FLAC download. Smithsonian Folkways charges the same price for the MP3 or FLAC versions and you are offered both from their download manager along with PDF copies of the original liner notes and album cover art. Nice.
