India Music Week exhibition


In conjunction with India Music Week, the Music & Arts Library has mounted an exhibition of materials from our collections representing the music of India, including books and recordings in several formats, and covering musical styles from the ancient art music traditions through Bollywood film music.  As is the case in several other areas of the world, audio cassettes were (and may remain) an important format for distribution, and our collections include over 800 audio cassettes of Indian music in many styles. The exhibition will remain up for several weeks; stop by and have a look, and perhaps enjoy listening to some of the many selections which are available in our collections for check-out. And, if you’re in the mood to enjoy some music of India remotely, check out the streaming audio content available on the Contemporary World Music and Smithsonian Global databases. Enjoy!
