A world of sound. Smithsonian Folkways Recordings director Tony Seeger says that "sound is an essential part of human experience.... The Smithsonian has unparalleled collections of insects, or gems, of paintings, and many other things, so why not a wonderful collection of sound?" So far they've released over 200 CDs, including folk, bluegrass, classical, world music, spoken word and more. The catalog we designed honors this eclectic vision: all releases to date are included, plus lots of images and text from the Smithsonian archives, the public library, and wherever else we could find them.
