Smithsonian Music

The Smithsonian Institution notes that if all of their "diverse music-related collections ... [were] assembled in one place, the Smithsonian would be the largest music museum in the world," leading them to celebrate 2019 as their Year of Music. Readers can explore some of these music collections through this website, which gathers numerous highlights from the Smithsonian's music resources into one place. Here, visitors can listen to thematic music playlists from Smithsonian Folkways as well as podcasts about music history and cultures around the world. Educators and interested readers may also want to check out the learn section, where they will find links to dozens of free lesson plans on world music topics and interactive learning tools, along with other educational resources. Smithsonian Music also includes a selection of videos featuring a diverse range of styles such as progressive hip-hop, Cajun, and mariachi. Readers may also enjoy the Smithsonian Music Blog, which offers a roundup of music-related stories and articles from across the entire Smithsonian Institution.
