I’m pleased to announce the latest publication of Smithsonian Folkways Magazine! This issue examines the representation of “faith” in the Smithsonian Folkways collection by highlighting our substantial Jewish cantorial collection (Dr. Judah Cohen), the Muslim call to prayer (Dr. Joseph Progler), Singing and Praying Bands of Maryland and Delaware (Dr. Clifford Murphy), and a new Smithsonian Folkways lesson plan based on our winter release, The Sounding Joy.
This issue will be of particular interest to scholars of religious studies, Jewish studies, Middle Eastern and/or Asian Studies, cultural heritage studies, musicology, and ethnomusicology.
With 108 multimedia elements (90 images, 16 full audio tracks, 2 videos), 3 articles and 1 lesson plan totaling nearly 5,400 words, as well as 96 links to the Smithsonian's music collection, browsing the issue becomes a multisensory experience.
Please enjoy and share with your networks.
