Die Identität des Labels besteht seit jeher darin Musik, Sprache und den Sound von Menschen aus allen Teilen der Welt zu dokumentieren. Huib Schippers, Direktor und Kurator bei Smithsonian Folkways: We create and curate sounds and stories to educate minds and delight ears in unexpected ways. At the same time, we’re committed to contributing to discussions on the major issues of the day, which is as urgent now as when Moses Asch founded the label in 1948.
