Digging The Smithsonian Vaults

Smithsonian Folkways let us dig through their vast vaults for the latest installment of their ongoing People's Picks series. An enigmatic maze, its hedges conjoin all manner of sound from around the globe. Selected by Justin Gage, expect: avant-garde jazz saxophonist Sonny Simmons live in Paris, an Alan Lomax field recording, the propulsive percussion of the Garifuna people, the sympathetic sitar of Shamim Ahmed, some square dance soul, "sacred" steel, Quebecois folk with a funky-drummer, and beyond . . .

Only the good shit. Aquarium Drunkard is powered by its patrons. Keep the servers humming and help us continue doing it by pledging your support.
