In this podcast (released June 20, 2007), Smithsonian Folkways Director and Curator Dan Sheehy talks about “endangered sounds,” sounds we lose from changing technologies or encroaching globalisation, including musical traditions. Dan reports on what Smithsonian Folkways Recordings is doing to preserve these sounds through their recordings.
