Really wonderful project this. So much to listen to and sampling aficionados will probably lose their minds altogether.
I'll just be in here for the next few years if you want me.
Folk Streams, collection of documentaries and random footage of American folk traditions:
The English Folk Dance and Song Society archive
Alan Lomax archives - this dude traveled the US for about 40 years recording some of the best musicians
none of it which has been heard before :) definitely worth your exploration!
currently enjoying big bill broonsey. legend
He's the curator of the Alan Lomax archive and a pretty great guitarist in his own right.
He played down here recently, then screened a load of footage from the archive (late '70s to mid 80s Deep South stuff). Really great. I've been rinsing the youtube channel ever since.
way ahead of you. I've been earmarking stuff.
"peruvian flute + flamenco guitar w/ overdriven glitch beats?"
Top project all round
